It is not particularly popular amongst Wallington conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to be issued with an injunction to stop the vendor disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in rare scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
