Deed of Power of Attorney for purchasing a property?

Hi there,
Has anyone purchased a property where the solicitors have sent them a Deed of Power of Attorney? I looked it up and it appears for overseas lawyers but I'm buying in the UK.

worldwidelawyers.co.uk/2014/11/21/giving-power-of-attorney-to-your-overseas-lawyer/

It's supposed to be for the stamp duty - Land Transaction Return Form of self certification form SDLT60 - but why would they need access to my bank accounts?
Maybe it's standard - so don't know why I can't find more about it - apart from this solicitors... Any advice/clarification would be really appreciated.
Thanks
