QUESTION: Dear Legal wiz,
I sent a power of attorney down to Jamaica for someone to operate for me. It got rejected at the Registration office because I didnt send the certificate confirming that the notary was authorised to sign.
I am sending another POA and the certificate because I simply do no have time and money to get the original and take it to the State to get the document from them. Do I have to pay again.. why cant I just transfer the fees I aid already.
RESPONSE: Dear Victor,
At both the stamp office, and the registrar general departments, you can get the fees you paid transferred to the new document you wish to use. The person who is dealing with it for you however must first go to the Stamp office and take the necessary steps to transfer the stamp duty paid, before attempting to transfer the fees paid at the Registrar General’s Department.
Be also mindful of any new or increased fees imposed before the transfer to the new document.
The above does not constitute or replace professional legal advice.
