Relative knowledge of the parties may also be a factor, as in the English case of Bissett vs. Wilkinson, where the court did not find a misrepresentation when a seller stated that the arable land sold would bear 2,000 sheep if treated by a team; the buyer was considered sufficiently competent to accept or reject the seller`s opinion. Guarantees/conditions (not applicable in Scotland) It is important to distinguish between fundamental treaty clauses and those which are less important.
