Power of Attorney (POA) or written permission

Mana rōia, tuhi whakaaetanga rānei

POA or written permission provides authority for someone, other than the property owner, to access full information about a property's rates account.

How to submit a POA or written permission

You will need to give us either:

  • a letter, signed by the property owner (written permission).

Written permission should include:

  • property ratepayers' names
  • property assessment number
  • property address
  • full name of the nominated person
  • scanned confirmation that the nominated person is allowed to access the information on the account (legal document)
  • scanned letter that includes the ratepayers' signatures.
