105. Transactions in respect of which the agent may claim remuneration.

The following rules, derived from common law, must be read as being subject to legislative provision relating to commercial agents1, where such provision applies2.

Remuneration can be claimed by the agent only on transactions which are the direct consequence of the agency3. It is not necessary that the agent should actually complete the transaction4, but he must show that it was brought about as the direct result of his intervention5. It is not sufficient to show that it would not have been entered into but for his services, if it resulted from them only as a casual or remote consequence6.
