Power of Attorney

This service is available across France

Who would find this Service useful?

This service is ideal for individuals who need to authorise another person to legally act on their behalf in France. 

A power of attorney in France is particularly useful for those who are unable to manage their affairs due to absence, illness, or other incapacity. It's also beneficial for business owners who need to delegate specific responsibilities or tasks.

Known in France as "Procuration," the power of attorney is a legal document authorising a trusted individual (the agent) to act on behalf of another (the principal). There are different types of Power of Attorney in France:

  • General Procuration: Grants broad administrative powers to manage almost all aspects of the principal's affairs.
  • Special Procuration: Allows the principal to specify areas where the agent can take actions beyond administrative tasks, like selling or buying property.
  • Administrative Mandate: Focused on managing day-to-day administrative tasks.
