Wilkinson agreed to sell two adjoining blocks of rural land
to Bisset. During negotiations Wilkinson stated that he believed the land could
hold 2000 sheep, if cultivated and used correctly. After purchasing the land
Bisset discovered the land could not hold 2000 sheep. Bisset sued Wilkinson in
the tort of deceit. The court decided that Wilkinson was not liable. He had
made a statement of opinion and not a statement of fact. It was an opinion
honestly and reasonably held; as Bisset was aware, the land had never been used
for sheep farming in the past.
