My rental agreement says that "The Landlord agrees to rent the house of approximately 1200 square feet". But the house is not 1200 square feet. It is 1050 square feet.
If the parties reasonably understood which house is described and the tenant inspected, then agreement likely still be enforceable. Misstatements can give rise to fraud liable, but the damages in such a case would likely make that claim uneconomic to pursue.
