Abstract

This article seeks to demonstrate that under the LTA there are no impediments to the satisfaction of an equity based on a claim in proprietary estoppel and its enforceability against third parties. That there are problems in these two respects is misconceived in light of case law and the relevant statutory provisions in the LTA. As for the satisfaction of the equity, it is argued that a principled approach must be adopted notwithstanding the wide discretion conferred on the courts on the matter.
