Example text

Generally, no formalities are necessary: the appointment may be oral or in writing. To take an example, the employees of a trading company are frequently expressly appointed by their contract of employment to act as the agents of the company and to place and receive orders on its behalf. 2 By estoppel If P by his words or conduct leads C to believe that A is his agent, and C deals with A on that basis, A cannot escape the contract by saying that, in fact, A was not his agent. In these circumstances P will be stopped, or ‘estopped’, from making that assertion.

A court will infer the existence of a collateral contract by A (as principal) with C, under which A warranted that he had P’s authority to contract. This is a quite separate contract to the non-existent contract which C thought he was entering into with P, but from C’s point of view it is just as good, for now C can sue A instead. 14 Limitation under the Limitation Act 1980 can sue before any real physical damage has been experienced. Suppose the defendant is an architect who has, in breach of contract, designed foundations for a building which are inadequate, and it is clear that in 10 to 20 years’ time the building will fall down if remedial works are not carried out.

However, the attempt from about the 1960s (associated with the developing concept of a general principle of liability in negligence described above) to extend its ambit to economic losses generally has been largely unsuccessful. Today, economic loss is not always irrecoverable in the tort of negligence, but it requires a claimant to prove the exceptional circumstances necessary in order to establish that a defendant owed him a duty not to cause such damage. This long-standing reluctance to recognise a duty of care to prevent economic loss has been largely based on what is referred to as the ‘floodgates’ argument – the concern that it would widen the potential scale of liability in tort to an indeterminable extent.
