Highlight

A latent ambiguity arises when a writing appears unambiguous on its face, but some collateral matter makes the meaning uncertain.
A latent ambiguity is shown to exist for the first time by matter outside the writing when an attempt is made to apply the language to the ground.
A party may not use extrinsic evidence to create a latent ambiguity in a deed and change the terms of an unambiguous deed.
Any evidence to prove the true intent of the parties or prove the existence of a mutual mistake is admissible in an action to reform a deed.
