Do a due diligence exercise through a senior real estate lawyer.
He will check registration record of the PoA. If the PoA is cancelled, the registration record should show it. He should also check the NADRA record of NIC of Owner and of Attorney. In the NADRA record of the Owner, the lawyer will check the names of the heirs and then he will find out if there is any dispute in relation to the property.
After the due diligence exercise is done and the lawyer has done his work, try to talk to the Owner if he is alive. If he is dead talk to the heirs. Preferably get the heirs to sign on the sale deed as witnesses.
Give an ad in all major newspapers that you are entering into this transaction and if anyone has any objections, they may raise them now.
Finally, in the Sale Deed, the Attorney should agree to indemnify the buyer for any claims, disputes arising from any defect in the Attorney's authority to sell the plot. Tell the Attorney to give you a lien over his other property as security if there is any dispute because of his defective authority.
If these conditions are not satisfied, dont buy the plot.
It is better to not buy such property, In my case the POA cancelled while I went for registry. Please check every thing before you go for final deal. All peoples are not same but in Pakistan any thing could be happend. Take care
