Irrevocable agency


When an agency cannot be terminated or put an end to, it is said to be an irrevocable agency in following cases:

1.       Where the agency is coupled with interest. Where an agent has an interest in the subject matter of the contract entered into by him with a third party, his authority is coupled with the interest. He has, in such case, the right to sue or be sued, but only to the extent of his interest. (sec 202)
2.       Where the agent has incurred a personal liability. When an agent incurs personal liability, the agency becomes irrevocable. The principal cannot, in such case, withdraw leaving the agent exposed to the risk or liability he has already incurred.
3.       Where the agent has partly exercised the authority: The principal cannot revoke the authority given to his agent after the authority has been partly exercised; so far as regards such acts and obligations as arise from the acts already done in agency.(Sec. 204)
