Obedience

An agent is obligated to obey promptly and efficiently all lawful instructions of his principal. However, this
duty plainly does not include an obligation to obey any unlawful instructions; for example, an instruction not
to market the property to minorities or to misrepresent the condition of the property. Compliance with
instructions the agent knows to be unlawful could constitute a breach of an agent’s duty of loyalty.
