That sounds about right helhod, I was quoted 600 + , only 3 weeks ago. Plus it will be another 130.00 to register the PoA.
If you can fly over for less, and have the time, then do it. :goodluck:

A LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY will cost 5-600 in the UK. For info this replaced the Enduring POA which is no longer available. The Lasting POA has to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. Their fee is over 100. The LPOA is totally invalid if not registered and there are serious penalties for misuse. The LPOA document runs more than 20 pages, so always ensure you ask a solicitor for more than one notorised copy, as no orgainsation will accept a photocopy/scanned copy or emailed copy.

This is not the type of POA document you should give to an agent. It's more appropriate, for example, in preparation for handling the affairs of someone who becomes ill (alzherimers etc) - but whoever gives that type of POA MUST have the mental capacity to do so.It is a long term document. Hence only use a lawyer.

The ordinary power of attorney is simpler and can be restricted to say, the one purpose it's meant for. In this case handling the sale of a property. However, I wouldn't want to give it to an agent. Make it in favour of a lawyer. It's worth the extra.

However, if you feel happy then buy one of the Lawpack Power of Attorney Kits - you can get them is stationers and Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=lawpack+power+of+attorney
