Breaches of a purchase and sale agreement?

I am in the process of purchasing a property and have recently signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement. However, I am concerned that the Seller may be in breach of the Agreement, and I am seeking legal advice regarding my rights in this situation. Specifically, I would like to know what remedies are available to me if the Seller does breach the Agreement.

The usual remedy for a Seller breach of a Purchase and Sale Agreement is known as specific performance. That means that you could sue the Seller to force him to complete the sale of the property. To see if there are any other remedies, I would have to review the agreement.
