148. Rectification of leases; in general.

Where a transaction has been completed by the execution of a deed or other instrument, but the instrument does not express what the parties had agreed, it may be rectified if proof of their agreement can be produced1. Rectification is an equitable remedy and thus the court has a discretion as to whether or not it ought to be granted2.

There must be strong evidence that, by mistake, the instrument does not reflect the true intentions of the parties3; to allege that a lease signed by the parties is erroneous is a serious allegation requiring a high degree of probability4.
