15 Questions Answered
Q. What code section covers un-disclosed principals ?
A: In the state of Georgia, the code section that covers un-disclosed principals is found in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) Section 10-2-318. This section states that an agent may act for a principal who is not disclosed and that the contract is enforceable by and against the undisclosed principal as if he had been disclosed. Additionally, it states that when an agent acts for an undisclosed principal, undisclosed principal is bound by the act of the agent but third parties are not bound to give notice of the agency to the undisclosed principal.
