There are frequently circumstances where it becomes necessary for an individual to represent the interests of a citizen or to undertake certain legal actions on their behalf. In such cases, the legal basis for these actions is a power of attorney (in Greek [πληρεξούσιο]).

There are two parties to a power of attorney. The principal is the one who entrusts and the representative, or proxy, is the one who is entrusted. Legally, a power of attorney is a one-sided transaction. To execute it, it needs only the willingness of the principal. The presence or consent of the representative is not necessary.

The principal and representative must be adults and have legal capacity. On behalf of children and incapacitated citizens, powers of attorney are issued by their legal representatives: parents, guardians or adoptive parents.


As a general rule, any lawful act that the principal can perform personally can also be performed by his authorised representative under a power of attorney. The exception is a number of powers that cannot be delegated by power of attorney. These may include: child custody and parental responsibility, marriage, the right to vote in elections, illegal acts, etc.

A power of attorney may be general or special. General Power of Attorney - includes all types of activities in the legal sphere (from real estate transactions to execution of documents). A special power of attorney covers a certain sphere of legal relations: buying/selling/renting real estate, accepting/executing inheritance, giving/accepting as a gift, drawing up/receiving a pension, banking issues, authorising a parent to take a child abroad, etc.

The power of attorney can be certified by a notary or at the Consulate of your country.
