    central london property trust ltd v high trees house


    In "Central London Property Trust Ltd v High Trees House," the court established the doctrine of promissory estoppel. This case involved a landlord who promised to accept reduced rent during wartime. Later, when the war ended, they sought full rent. However, the court held that the landlord couldn't revert to the original agreement due to the tenant's reliance on the promise. This landmark decision emphasized the importance of honoring promises, even if not legally binding. It's a pivotal case illustrating equity's role in preventing unfairness, ensuring parties uphold their commitments, and maintaining trust in contractual relationships.
