In order to be effective, the retrospective ratification of an agent's act1 must be made by the person for whom the act was professedly done or his personal representative2. The person ratifying need not necessarily have been a named individual at the time when the act was done, but must have been ascertainable3. A person entitled to the reversion of an estate may ratify the agency of one who has been professedly receiving the rents for the rightful owner4.
