The book includes the differences between rescission ab initio and cognate concepts, the various grounds for rescission, and its diverse mechanisms and bars. It also contains full consideration of the controversial distinctions between rescission at law and in equity; the incidence of proprietary claims upon rescission; claims against third parties; and the special rules governing the rescission of gifts.
This second edition builds on the success of the first, which established itself as the leading work on this topic. The first edition was cited and the analysis of partial rescission applied in Canada in BC Ltd v JEL Investments Ltd 2012 BCSC 202. For this second edition there is expanded coverage of the mortgagor's right to rescind sale of a mortgaged property by the mortgagee at an undervalue and even more extensive consideration of authorities, including those from a wider selection of Commonwealth jurisdictions.
Rescission is frequently sought in commercial, property, and insurance disputes, and as such this book is an indispensable reference for all lawyers involved in civil litigation and for civil judges. The book will also be of great interest to academics researching contract, remedies or restitution.
