Background. The Constitution of the Russian Federation recognizes not only the existence of various forms of property, but also guarantees their equal protection. The notary is of great importance to the institution of protection of property rights since the Roman times of private law taking a separate place in this institution. Carrying out the function of protecting the rights and legitimate interests of subjects of legal relations, including property rights, a notary is guided by clearly prescribed ways, namely, performs notarial acts provided for by the law, i.e. carries out notarial proceedings or denies them. The purpose of the work is to analyze the grounds for refusal to perform notarial acts and its accomplishment procedure.
Materials and methods. The research tasks were implemented through analyzing the current legislation regulating notarial activities and court decisions on the issues of appealing against refusal to perform notarial acts. Comparative legal and formal legal methods were used as the main research methods in the analysis of the federal legislation regulating activities of the notary.
Results. The authors have investigated main cases of refusal to perform notarial actions and considered the procedural order of issuing a resolution on refusal to perform notarial actions and its appeal. 
Conclusions. It is determined that the refusal to perform notarial actions is one of constituent elements of the obligatory activity of a notary in the field of rights protection. It is established that the absence of a separate index of cases and the determination of its shelf life in the Exemplary Nomenclature causes difficulties in systematizing the results of notarial record keeping.
