There is a broad and material distinction between a warranty and a representation. A representation is not a part of the contract, but is collateral thereto, while a warranty is a part of the contract. In consequence of this, while the falsity of a representation is not a ground for avoiding the contract unless material to the risk, a warranty as to any fact will preclude any inquiry as to the materiality of that fact.
