824.     Defences to proceedings.

By way of answer to any proceedings for rescission or analogous relief, in whichever form1 they may be instituted, the representor2 may set up any of the affirmative pleas3 which are special to proceedings of this nature, in addition to any other defence which may be available4. In the case of these pleas, the burden of allegation and, except so far as any averment may be expressly or impliedly admitted5, of proof is on the representor6.
