This chapter discusses the various methods by which the authority of an agent can be terminated according to the law of agency. Numerous such methods exist, but they can be loosely organized into two distinct categories: first, termination by an act of the parties; second, termination by operation of the law. An agent’s authority may be terminated by the act of one or both of the parties. It should be noted that, whilst the acts discussed in the chapter will usually terminate the agent’s actual authority, the facts of the case might lead the court to conclude that the agent still has apparent authority to act on behalf of the principal.
