Pre-contract deposit

Both parties agree to pay a deposit, usually 1.5% of the agreed purchase price, to a stakeholder and agree that contracts will be exchanged within a specified and acceptable period. If one side pulls out, the other takes both deposits. Although not a water-tight agreement, it does reduce the risk of being gazumped.
