Strata tip #72: Buying – Power of Attorney contract execution

If you are going to be in the back woods of Botswana during the contract negotiation phase, then consider granting a power of attorney to someone you trust; such as your lawyer.  Make sure the power of attorney is prepared and executed before you leave the country.  A well drafted power of attorney, and a well instructed solicitor, can make contract execution as easy as the exchange of a few emails or satellite phone calls.
