Signing documents – The Sale and Purchase Agreement for property.
A common misconception among vendors, buyers, agents and salespeople when signing a contract for sale and purchase of property is that a person can sign for and on behalf of an absent party. This has legal implications and it advisable to consult with your conveyancing lawyer prior to signing the agreement.
It is best practice to obtain a power of attorney or other appropriate written authority from the absent party to enable someone else to sign for and on behalf of them.
