Misrepresentation, Warranty and Estoppel
AbstractFew legal concepts are as basic, and as ill-defined, as representation, warranty, and estoppel. Professor Atiyah conducts an examination of the nature of these concepts, as well as their interrelation. The nature of representation, the nature of warranty, and the nature of the distinction between misrepresenta tion and warranty are instructively analyzed in the first part of the article. In the second part, Professor Atiyah investigates the nature and functions of the doctrine of estoppel by representation, and discusses the relations between repre sentation, warranty, and estoppel.
