Modes of informing that an agent has been appointed

Art. 1873 par.1. If a person specially informs another or states by public advertisement that he has given a power of attorney to a third person, the latter thereby becomes a duly authorized agent, in the former case with respect to the person who received the special information, and in the latter case with regard to any person. (Civil Code of the Philippines)

There are two modes of informing others that a person has been appointed as agent. One is by specific information and the other is by public advertisement.

The first one occurs when a person specially informs another that he has given a power of attorney to a third person, then that third person becomes his agent with respect to the person who received the special information.

The other one happens when a person states by public advertisement that he has given a power of attorney to a third person, then that third person becomes his agent with respect to any person.
