" FINANCIAL AGENTS."

FINANCIAL AGENTS." Courts of all jurisdictions are frequently engaged in adjudicating upon actions brought for commission by the class of men who, for want of a better style, adopt the somewhat nondescript, one of financial agents." These persons make a livelihood by intro- ducing—generally through a series of subordinate agents—money borrowers to money lenders, for a remuneration calculated upon the amount of the ad- vance. What is known as a commission note is generally required to be signed by the intending borrower, and given to the financial agent, stating that upon the advance of such and such a sum so much per cent, is to be payable thereout to the agent. It seems to be popularly supposed that this commission is conditional upon the actual pay- ment of the requisite amount and the de- fence is continually raiaed that the money not having been paid through some difficulty in title. or some onerous stipulation insisted upon by the lender with which the borrower refuses to comply, the right of the agent does not arise. This contention, however, is negatived by the case of "Green v. Lucas." There the Court of Appeal held that where an agent employed to borrow money upon leasehold security finds a person able and willing to lend, but the negotiation goes off by reason of such person dis- covering unusual stipulations which the agent was not informed of, the agent is entitled to the whole of the commission as if the loan had been actually made. It accordingly behoves intending borrowers and their advisers to see that contracts for commission contain specific terms that no commission shall be payable except the advance is completed, where any difficulty exists, or is apprehended, in the security.— Law Times.
