I hold a non-Jersey power of attorney – Can I register this in Jersey?

Powers of attorney | Private Client

The Jersey Royal Court will recognise a non-Jersey power of attorney, provided that such power of attorney is first registered with the Royal Court.

How do I make an application to register a power of attorney in Jersey?

The application to register is made by way of an application called a Representation. This must be made by a Jersey lawyer with the following documentation:-

  • The original (registered) LPA / power of attorney / deputy-ship or guardianship order (or a court sealed copy of the order) or where powers of attorney do not need to be registered, an affidavit from a lawyer in that jurisdiction confirming the same;
  • A copy of the most recent valuation statement in relation to the asset or assets in Jersey;
  • Confirmation of the full name and residential addresses of any parties interested in the registration; and
  • Court stamps

What happens once you have made the application?

The Royal Court of Jersey will provide an Act of Court confirming registration of the order.  This will allow you to deal with the assets in Jersey.
