15.5.8 The traditional idea is that these two temporal limits of the doctrine of ratification are based on separate rules. However, the second time frame may be a specific application of the rule that ratification must take place within a reasonable period of time. Therefore, where the treaty sets a deadline for the action of a particular act, ratification after that period is generally not considered to take place within a reasonable period of time. 15.5.9 Another restriction of the ratification doctrine is that the act of ratification must take place at a given time and, in circumstances, when the ratifying party itself could have legally performed the act it had ratified – Vogel v. Braun (1850) 4 Exch. 786. In other words, a client cannot ratify an act if, at the time of ratification, the awarding entity is unable to approve the act in question. Nor can a client be allowed to ratify certain legal acts that were legal at the time of their seized, but which are no longer legal at the time of ratification. Therefore, if there is a change in the law, so that a transaction that was legal, if it was made, became so illegal that an attempt to approve it later would be non-extended, the transaction cannot be ratified. 15.10.1 The agency relationship usually ends with the death or mental incapacity of the client. The contracting entity may also, in general, report the Agency by notification to the representative, unless the relationship is subject to a specified contract, in accordance with contractual conditions.
Again, the courts will rarely order the actual performance of the contract, in which case the Agency may be terminated subject to the attorney`s right to claim damages for infringement. A contract describes the obligations and rights of the agreement and allows a party to obtain mutual legal assistance when the contract is reached. In some cases, the agreement may be amended. The parties can then amend their agreement to show the amendment. 15.4.10 In exceptional cases, a plenipotentiary, without the power of representation, may clearly represent the power of the agent, but the adjudicating entity of the agent authorizing the transaction in question. The line between the two situations is thin and the courts are therefore careful not to conclude liberally that an agent is entitled to represent that the client has accepted the transaction. Such a case is that of Kelly v Fraser  1 AC 450, where the director of the company`s services department led the day-to-day management of the company`s staff pension plan. Under the rules of the plan, directors had discretion to accept benefits from other pension funds in the plan. Although the directors did not authorize the head of the department, the director accepted in the plan the accumulated value of the defendant`s right in his former employer`s pension plan. This was done without the directors` knowledge. Yet the court kept the directors attached to what the head was doing.
Although the respondent did not promise the defendant that the chief was entitled to do what he had done, since the directors had entrusted the director with the task of issuing authorizations to the chief, he had the power, in the circumstances, to inform the defendant that the transferred fund had been included in the pension fund. The agents were therefore related to what had been communicated to the defendant. 15.7.1 As an intermediary, the intermediary is in principle liable to the third party in the context of the contract. Nevertheless, it is possible for the agent to resign not only on behalf of the principal, but also for his own benefit. A good example is a partner who negotiates a contract on behalf of the entire partnership. Sometimes the word form used determines whether the agent has personally entered into a contract, either in addition to the principle or sometimes to the exclusion of the principal.
