Thank you for that.
When I as Estate Agent advised the solicitor, on behalf of the client(s) of the "sale agreed" and to prepare contracts, I advised him of the planning condition. I would have thought that the contract would have included such a clause and that the Purchaser and the Vendor would have been invited to sign the contract.
The whole object of this type of contract is to ensure that if the Purchaser gets planning permission, especially with a specific set of plans, that the Vendor could not renege on the agreement and keep or sell the property to A N Other. Likewise such a contract should protect the seller in that, since the property is off the market during the duration of the planning application that the vendor should not suffer by possibly missing out on other prospective purchasers.
