Suggested Answer to Exercise 12.4 (Part 1)

Approaching the Question

  • It is only an illustration. There is no one right way to answer any question.
  • It is in note form – you need to develop and practice your own style of answering questions.
  • Although s.2 of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989 will be an important part of answering this type of question, examiners will rarely, if ever, want you simply to tick off the various section 2 requirements. Look out for the issues that require detailed consideration and application of substantive topics. In particular, consider what remedies may be available, including rectification and, as in this exercise, proprietary estoppel (see also, Chapter 14).
