Mode of exercise of powers

202 Mode of exercise of powers

(1) Where a power of appointment by an instrument other than a will is exercised by deed, executed and attested under this Act, or, in the case of an instrument under the Land Title Act 1994 , under that Act, such deed or instrument shall, so far as respects the execution and attestation of the instrument, be a valid exercise of the power, even though by the instrument creating the power some additional or other form of execution or attestation or solemnity is required.
(2) This section does not operate to defeat any direction in the instrument creating the power that—
(a) the consent of any particular person is to be necessary to a valid execution; or
(b) in order to give validity to any appointment, any act is to be performed having no relation to the mode of executing and attesting the instrument.
(3) This section does not prevent the donee of a power from executing it under the power by writing, or otherwise than by an instrument executed and attested as a deed, and where a power is so executed this section does not apply.
(4) This section applies to the exercise after the commencement of this Act of any such power created by an instrument coming into operation before or after the commencement of this Act.
