Proprietary Estoppel: Recent Updates
Proprietary estoppel is a flexible and useful cause of action. Instances of parties claiming entitlement to equitable relief by way of proprietary estoppel have increased markedly in the last few years.

Consequently it is an important area of law for property, family and commercial practitioners.
