Situation wherein the agent's conduct causes a client or prospective insured reasonably to believe that the agent has the authority to sell an insurance policy and contract on behalf of the insurance company. For example, if an agent continues to use insurance company documents, such as its application forms, rate manuals, stationery, and emblems on the door, the client has every reason to believe that the agent does in fact continue to represent the insurance company.
