Gee v Gee and another

Estoppel – Proprietary estoppel. The Chancery Division held that the claimant had made out his claim for proprietary estoppel in respect of a family farm in Oxfordshire. The court held that the claimant had, to his detriment, relied on his father's representations that the claimant would succeed him as the owner of the farm and that it was inequitable for the father to resile from those representations. Among other things, the court ruled that, while the representations had not entered into the details of the relevant shareholdings or land holdings, that had not rendered them insufficiently certain to be relied on.
