Relation of principal / agent, subagent and substituted agent

Sub agent– a sub agent is a person employed by, and acting under the control of, the original agent, in the business of the agency. The relation of the sub agent to the original agent is as between themselves, that of the agent and the principal.


Substituted Agenta substituted agent is a person who is named by the agent, on an express or implied authority for the principal, to act for the principal. He is not a sub agent but an agent of the principal for such part of the business of the agency as is entrusted to him. He is the agent of the principal, though he is named, at the request of the principal, by the agent.
