What are the usual agency arrangements under a time charter?

Most time charter parties provide that charterers will provide and pay for all agents.Β 

Where time charterers’ agents fail to properly look after the ship’s business (such as crew changes, repairs, stores, etc. ), the owners or managers should appoint their own protecting or husbandry agent to look after their interests. (In some charter parties an agreement is made that owners will do this in any case. )
