Principal’s Contract Liability

15 January, 2016 - 09:35


  1. Understand that the principal’s liability depends on whether the agent was authorized to make the contract.
  2. Recognize how the agent’s authority is acquired: expressly, impliedly, or apparently.
  3. Know that the principal may also be liable—even if the agent had no authority—if the principal ratifies the agent’s contract after the fact.
