What it is:
A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint another person to act on your behalf. 
Frequently used for:
For example, a POA is used when buying or selling a house, boat, or car in another country. You can appoint a lawyer, or another person in that country, to represent you.
Original or copy:
The original document is required for the apostille service. Your signature on the POA MUST be witnessed by a practising UK solicitor or notary public.
Photocopies of the POA can not be used to get an apostille in the UK. 
Good to know:
There are two main types of power of attorney in the UK.
- Lasting power of attorney(LPA)
- General power of attorney (POA)
If you need to replace or create a new POA, a new document must be made, and a UK solicitor or notary must again witness your signature.
How much does it cost?
A standard apostille for a power of attorney starts from £97.
Other costs will depend on what service you choose (same-day service available) if you need a notary or solicitor service, embassy fees if required and what return delivery method is required
