in the presence of a notary public

Hello,

I' like to ask you about the best way to explain that an estate agent will be entitled to sell a property on behalf of the owner and it will be agreed in the presence of a notary public.

Could I say it this way:
He wants me to sell the flat on his behalf and he will entitle me to do that in the presence of a notary public.

I'd appreciate your replies.

    ... and he will grant me permission in the presence of a notary public.

    Sounds about right to me.

    I suspect in the US we'd say "empower" rather than "entitle," or more formally "he'll assign me power-of-attorney to do that..."

    :thumbsup:

    Entitle doesn't work for me at all in AE. Entitle is doing something for yourself. You are not selling the flat for your own benefit.

    My suggestion

    He wants me to sell the flat on his behalf and he will authorise me to do that in the presence of a notary public.
