This text offers an account of all current types of estoppel, including estoppel by record (res iudicata), as well as the connected doctrine of election, in a single volume.

Few practitioners are immune from having to deal with estoppel at some point. Estoppel applies to almost all aspects of English civil law. Each sort of estoppel is explained by first stating the essential factors that must be proven in order to establish the estoppel, and then detailing each aspect with its numerous components. A quick explanation of the estoppel is supplied at the end of each chapter to aid practitioners and others to any question that may arise in a particular situation.

The law of estoppel has progressed significantly in recent decades, with major changes such as the clarification of previously ambiguous boundaries of proprietary estoppel, a statement of exceptions to the principles of res iudicata, and the extension law as well as of fact occurring in the last ten years alone. These and other topics are thoroughly explained.
