You can sign legally significant documents in person or delegate your authority to a trusted person. A notarial power of attorney to perform any actions, including the right to sign, is drawn up on the basis of Article 185 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and is of three types.
You can transfer your right to sign by issuing a one-time power of attorney, special or general. A one-time power of attorney includes the execution of one transaction or transfers to the authorized person the right to put one or more signatures on one or more legal documents. A special power of attorney is issued to an authorized person to carry out a specific order or a number of specific orders. Both one-time and special powers of attorney end automatically as soon as the principal has fulfilled your order specified in the document.
A general power of attorney allows you to sign, represent your interests to third parties and perform other legally significant actions for you within three years. That is, having issued a general power of attorney, you transfer all your powers to a trusted person.
You can revoke the document at any time by applying to the notary at the place of registration and notifying the principal within three working days from the date of revocation of the power of attorney in writing. Also, your authorized representative can contact a notary at any time, return the power of attorney and write a written refusal from it. At the same time, he is obliged to notify you in writing that he refused the order of your authorized representative.
To draw up any type of power of attorney for the right to sign for you in the documents, contact any notary office together with the authorized person. You and your authorized person need to have only a general civil passport of the Russian Federation with you.
Explain to the notary what type of power of attorney you want to issue, pay for the services. Within one day, you will be issued any type of power of attorney. From the moment the document is drawn up, your authorized person can start his direct duties and perform legally significant actions for you, put signatures and represent your interests to third parties.
