Naked Authority Law and Legal Definition
A naked authority is an authority delegated by the principal to the agent, solely for the principal’s benefit without giving any consideration to the agent. A naked authority can be revoked at the principal’s will. In such delegation, the agent has to perform the delegated act himself, and s/he cannot delegate his/her authority to another. A naked authority cannot be further delegated by the agent because such authority is given to the agent based on the trust that is imposed on him/her.
