Kinds and Scope of Agency
The kinds and scope of agency depend on the terms and conditions of the agency contract.
General and special agency
Agency couched in general terms
If an agency is couched in general terms, it comprises only act of administration even if: (a) the principal should state that he withholds no power or that the agent may execute such acts as he may consider appropriate, or (b) the agency should authorize a general and unlimited management.
A special power to compromise does not authorize submission to arbitration.
