Agent

 

in Soviet civil law, a party in a contract of agency. The agent’s duties include the performance of specified legal acts, for example, contracts of sale and management of property, in the name of and on the account of a principal party. The agent may be a legally competent (sui juris) citizen or a legal person (if this is allowed by the latter’s charter or statute). The actions performed by the agent directly generate, change, or extinguish rights and obligations of the principal.

The agent is bound to perform the agency in exact conformity with the principal’s instructions, carry out the agency personally, although in instances provided for by law the responsibilities may be transferred to another person (art. 68 of the RSFSR Civil Code), inform the principal upon demand of progress in performing the agency, submit a report on performance of the agency, and transfer to the principal any property obtained in connection with performance of the agency.
