Acceptance by a Representative
If the registered buyer is not available on the scheduled turnover of unit, his/her duly authorized representative can accept the unit in his/her behalf. The representative must be designated as a duly notarized Special Power of Attorney (SPA).
The unit turnover cannot be delayed on account of SPA’s availability schedule.
