Heard v Pilley (1869)
- The claimant sought specific performance of a contract for the purchase of real property
- The defendant claimed that the agent who had signed the contract had no authority as oral authority could not authorise the signing of contracts with formal (writing) requirements
- Was the contract specifically enforceable? Was there authority?
- Yes, Yes
- Agents may sign contracts with formal requirements without being appointed so formally
