Voidable Title: Rescission and Reformation of Deeds; Third Party Relief From Fraudulent Transfers


Ralph E. Boyer and William H. Ryan

Chapter Summary


This chapter discusses voidable deeds and voidable title and distinguishes the two concepts. It also explores rescission of voidable title as well as remedies and damages available. The chapter goes on to discuss reformation of and remedies available for voidable deeds. It characterizes rescission and reformation as equitable actions and therefore subject to the prerequisites to seeking equitable relief. Additionally, the chapter briefly covers third party relief from fraudulent transfers.
