It is not particularly popular amongst Cann Hall conveyancing lawyers as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is not likely to win injunctive relief to bar the vendor selling to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in restricted situations, the extra payment of penalties.
