Thorner v Major and others [2009] UKHL 18; [2009] WLR (D) 111

Oblique assurances by a farmer of an intention to leave a farm to a cousin, who had worked full-time without any remuneration on the farm for 29 years, could constitute a sufficiently clear and unequivocal representation to establish a proprietary estoppel when the farmer ultimately died intestate.”
