Persimmon Homes Ltd v Hillier and others

Mistake – Rectification. The claimant company succeeded in its claim for rectification of warranties and a related disclosure letter, with regard to the acquisition of a row parcels of land lying behind a number of houses. The evidence demonstrated that it had been intended for additional, neighbouring land to be included in the transaction. The Chancery Division held that the first and second defendants were in breach of warranties given in the rectified sale and purchase agreement, and were liable to pay damages to the claimant.
