Example text

If P represents to C that his agent A has an authority wider than, in fact, has been expressly or impliedly granted by P to A, and in reliance on that representation C contracts with P through A, then P will be stopped (‘estopped’) from denying that the scope of A’s authority was wide enough to include the contract that has been made. 07 We now consider the liabilities of both principal and agent with the contracting third party C, and the discussion is divided into those cases in which the agent is authorised to enter into the transaction, and those in which he is not so authorised.

In White and Carter (Councils) v McGregor [1962] AC 413 the claimant company supplied litter bins to local councils. The councils did not pay for the bins, but they allowed them to carry advertising, and the claimants made their money from the companies whose advertisements their bins carried. The defendant company agreed to hire space on the claimants’ bins for 3 years. Later the same day they changed their mind and said that they were not going to be bound by the contract. The claimants could have accepted that renunciation, but, perhaps short of work and wanting to keep busy, opted to carry on with the contract, which they proceeded to do for the next 3 years.

By that deed (which was a contract in itself) the owner acquired a direct remedy against the contractor in respect of any failure by the contractor to exercise reasonable skill, care and attention to any matter within the scope of the contractor’s responsibilities under the contract. Serious defects were found in the building and the employer served notice of arbitration claiming damages for defective work and delay. The contractor objected on the basis that that the employer, having suffered no loss, was not entitled to recover substantial damages under the contract.
