Tamplin v James, (1879)

The defendant brought an inn and its outbuildings in the mistaken belief that the property included a garden, which was adjacent to it. However, the description of the property clearly excluded the garden

Held: No reasonable man would have misapprehended the character of the property. Since the defendant got substantially what he bargained for, specific performance was ordered against him.
