This article considers the proper measure of relief in promissory and proprietary estoppel. It is observed that clear guidance is lacking. The author argues that because it is not possible to treat uniformly the loss of a house in a domestic or family situation and a multi million dollar failed bond deal, a distinction, for purposes of determining appropriate relief, could be drawn between cases of a purely domestic nature and those that are self-evidently commercial.
