Both arranging a mortgage in Dubai and buying a property can be a time-consuming process. It can be even more stressful if you need to travel while various details of the transaction need to be finalized. Appointing a Power of Attorney (POA) leaves you free to travel in and out of the UAE for business or pleasure, while a nominated individual acts on your behalf to keep things moving.

Holo offers POA solutions in addition to our digital mortgage services. Power of Attorney is a legal document that enables a person, known as the 'principal', to appoint someone else, known as the 'agent', to act on their behalf. The agent can carry out tasks such as signing documents relating to your mortgage loan application and your property purchase as specified by the principal.

Who can you appoint as Power of Attorney?

You can appoint a nominated individual as Power of Attorney, or a company. You should be 21 years old and of sound mind to sign powers of attorney.

Our team will facilitate the drafting, translating, and attesting of POA for use across the UAE, leaving you with the peace of mind, that in your absence, everything's still proceeding as it should be.

How long does it take to implement a POA?

Subject to availability, we can facilitate same-day online appointments with the POA documentation issued the next day.
