Italian “Procura Speciale” to be signed before a notary public for the sale of an Italian property

Three brothers owned a house near Milan in Italy and after 20 years they decided to sell the house.

They had found buyers for the house and needed to sign a Procura Speciale giving authority for their Italian lawyer to sign all the legal documents required for the sale of the property.  To be valid in Italy the Procura Speciale had to signed by all three brothers before me as a Notary Public.  The Procura also had to have an Apostille fixed to it to validate it for use in Italy to enable the lawyer to sign on behalf of all of them and enable the sale to go ahead without them having to travel to Italy.
