II. Obligations of the agent
1. Compliance with instructions
1 An agent who has received instructions from the principal on how to conduct the business entrusted to him may deviate from them only to the extent that circumstances prevent him from obtaining the principal’s permission and that he may safely assume such permission would have been forthcoming had the principal been aware of the situation.
2 Where such conditions are not satisfied and the agent nevertheless deviates from the principal’s instructions to the latter’s detriment, the agency contract is deemed to have been performed only if the agent accepts liability for the resultant damage.
B. Formation du contrat
À moins d’un refus immédiat, le mandat est réputé accepté lorsqu’il se rapporte à des affaires pour la gestion desquelles le mandataire a une qualité officielle, ou qui rentrent dans l’exercice de sa profession, ou pour lesquelles il a publiquement offert ses services.
