Mistake Q&A 2


This answer involves an explanation of how an operative mistake makes a contract void rather than voidable (and the significance of this) and of the rules relating to the following types of mistake:

  • ‘mutual’ mistakes (where parties are at cross-purposes)
  • ‘unilateral’ mistakes as to terms (where one party has made a mistake as to the subject matter / terms of the proposed contract)
  • ‘unilateral’ mistakes as to identity (where one party has made a mistake about the other’s identity)
