Final question! Thanks a lot to anyone who has persevered this far. I'm looking for some background knowledge: how could the seller avoid his obligations by "offering to pay double"? Does "le double" refer to something else?

The vendor cannot release himself from his obligation by offering to pay double the amount
Explanation:
There is an implied term in French conveyancing whereby the vendor can revoke the contract on paying a sum equal to twice the deposit to the buyer. This right is often (as here) explicitly excluded from a purchase contract.
