General power of attorney for a share in an apartment
If an individual is engaged in the sale of an apartment share by a general power of attorney, the features of the procedure hardly differ from the standard scheme. Certain difficulties or additional questions arise because of the fact that the transaction is being carried out not with a separate apartment, but with just a part of it. Buyers face more risks; they want to know all the details regarding the apartment in general, the neighbours, as well as the owner. If a person receives a power of attorney to sell, for example, a part of an apartment consisting of 2 rooms, the transaction is also carried out taking into account the area of the bathroom, kitchen, and other premises that are important for apartment dwellers.
