Uglow v Uglow 
- The claimant expected to inherit a farm following assurances as to inheritance under a partnership agreement with the deceased, irrespective of the fact that the partnership broke down prior to the deceased’s death (but after detriment had been suffered by the claimant)
- Was the claimant entitled to the farm by virtue of proprietary estoppel?
- Proprietary estoppel may only be relied upon where a representation is unqualified, both explicitly and implicitly
- The deceased’s representations were implicitly qualified by a requirement of success of the partnership
