83. Misdescription.

A misdescription is generally defined as a factual error in the particulars of sale of the contract which misleads the buyer and as a consequence of which the seller is unable to convey the property as described in the particulars. Common examples are inaccurate descriptions of the measurements of the land or of the amount of rent obtainable from a tenanted property. The buyer may only repudiate the contract if the misdescription is substantial. A misdescription is substantial if its effect is substantially to deprive the buyer of his bargain
