Principle

No. II.5 - Attribution of knowledge to principal

Facts which the agent knows or ought to have known are attributable to the principal.

Commentary
The principal may not misuse the agency by arguing that he was not aware or did not know certain facts which his agent knew or ought to have known. Because the agent acts for the principal and with authority granted by the latter, his knowledge is attributed to the principal.
