Various remedies for innocent misrepresentation are given. In some cases specific performance has been refused.1 If the vendor innocently misrepresents to the purchaser the boundaries of the tract which is sold, the vendor can not have specific performance.2

In some cases formal rescission in equity has been granted.3 An innocent misrepresentation by a vendor as to the identity of the land which he is selling, is ground for rescission in equity.4 In other cases informal rescission at law by allowing recovery of the purchase money on tendering a reconveyance, has been permitted.5
