This high-level, practitioner text examines in detail these three allied areas of contract law, explaining the circumstances in which they can arise, the available remedies and their inter-relationship.

In one volume it draws together the complex mixture of rules of common law and statute that comprise the law in this area and is written in such a way that practitioners can immediately find a discussion of the particular problem they face.

  • Steers practitioners through the complex range of remedies that might be available for misrepresentation
  • Explains the links between claims based on mistake and claims for misrepresentation.
  • Examines recent case law in detail, in particular Shogun Finance Ltd v Hudson (on mistake of identity) and The Great Peace (on mistake)
  • Considers recent legislative developments such the Prospectus Regulations 2005 and duties of disclosure arising from Home Information Packs
  • Draws comparisons with other jurisdictions and looks at the directions in which English law might develop
