Can a person who is outside of USA purchase a house or apartment in Florida by power of attorney? Does it make a difference whether the person is foreigner or U.S. citizen?

  1. Yes, you can grant someone power of attorney to do that for you.

    Andrew M. Bonderud, Esq.
    The Bonderud Law Firm, P.A.
    Office: 904-438-8082

    Andrew M. Bonderud, Esq. is an attorney with The Bonderud Law Firm, P.A. He offers free consultations 24/7. Andrew's posting here is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.


  2. Yes-if the POA has standard real estate powers-very common.
    The "person" outside the USA can also create a trust to keep the property
    out of an probate proceeding.

    The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.


  3. Yes
