My elderly relative has a house in China that she wants sold. She wants to ask a friend to go to China on her behalf to sell the house for her (he will be going for a trip and offered to help her because she can't get there herself).
She is planning on writing a note stating she authorizes this person to act on her behalf to sell the house and for all transactions relating to this and then getting her signature notarized. Is this sufficient? Or what else does she need to do? I'm concerned the person could take the money and run, but she claims it won't be a problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
