Intentionally misstated or undisclosed facts, statements or representations. Misrepresentation is a form of fraud which could lead to cancellation of a contract or other liability. For example, an individual selling a home misrepresents the fact that the home is infested with termites. Upon discovering the true situation, the new homeowner wins a court settlement for the costs of repairing the damages.
