Rescission

This is what happens when a contract is, as it were, wound up and both parties are restored to their original position. It is the usual remedy in cases of misrepresentation. It is only allowed, though, where the parties can be restored to their original position, where no third parties are involved and where the claimant has acted within a reasonable time.
