Dear Mr.Anandakumar,

The Power Of Attorney becomes invalid upon the death of the Principal.Hence the Sale deed executed by the POA Holder is void.

The sale of share in respect of the deceased principal alone becomes void.

The entire POA does not become invalid or void.

nature of power of attorny is to be examined. was it revocable or irrevocable?


power in reespect of principal who  died is invalid and void. share in respect of person died is not valid.

The said PoA based property transaction is void only to the extent of the share of deceaced principal.

The property sold by the power of attorney is join property .So the death of the one of the title holder  (Principal) should made the entire sale deed invalid.
