Toby, my advice is, move on.

I started in the business when kipper ties & flared white jeans with a matching jacket were it and in all that time I can't think of anyone in your position having successfully sued for damages.
Tell a lie I do remember one seller enforcing an offer made direct to him, in writing, by a buyer which did not include the magic words, SUBJECT TO CONTRACT. The joke was the owner was a surveyor and the unfortunate (stupid) buyer was a solicitor! The market was in nosedive at the time so it was worth the sellers while plus the house had been underpinned thus making it tricky to sell.

The brutal fact is that no contract, however legally binding or not, can be bomb proof. If  the gain from breaking it sufficiently exceeds the consequences  then it is inevitable that some contracts will be dishonoured.  This does not only apply to property but, as we all know, life in general.

When buying, selling or renting my general advice is, assume nothing other than no one is on the ball, double check everything, and keep in constant touch.

As Regan said....'trust but verify.'
