Greer v Downs Supply Co (1927)
- An agent concluded a contract with a third party, with consideration provided by way of discharging the agent’s personal debt owed to the third party
- Could the agent’s undisclosed principal take over the contract?
- The agent’s debt was said to make the agent’s identity material to the contract, such that it was incompatible with the undisclosed agency doctrine
- Note: this case appears to have been overruled by Siu Kwan v Eastern Insurance Co
