The issuance of a notarized power of attorney is governed by Article 185 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. To verify the authenticity of the document, you must contact the notary office at the place of its registration.
It is necessary
If you are dealing with a notarized trustee, make sure that the document is authentic, its expiration date has not expired, and it has not been revoked by the trustee.
A notarial power of attorney can be of three types: special, one-time, general. By a special power of attorney, the principal transfers his powers to the authorized person to perform a number of specific orders. After their execution, the powers of the authorized person automatically end.
A one-time power of attorney is issued for the execution of one order, for example, when the principal delegates his authority to sign one document or to sell one apartment. As soon as the authorized person fulfills his order, the power of attorney is considered invalid.
The general power of attorney allows you to perform any actions for the principal within three years from the date of its execution. Any type of power of attorney can be canceled ahead of schedule, so you always need to be sure that the document is not revoked and is valid.
To check the notarial power of attorney, contact the notary office at the place of issue. Pay the state fee for information services, present your general passport. Within one day, you will receive information about whether the document is valid, whether its expiration date is valid, or whether it has been revoked by the principal.
Only the notary who issued the power of attorney can reliably tell you everything about the power of attorney itself. If you perform legally significant actions or transactions with a notarized authorized person and do not verify the authenticity of the document, then you always have a certain risk of running into fraudsters. Therefore, never take risks and always carefully check all documents and their authenticity. With this method, you will protect yourself from all risks.
