Reneging on purchase deal after mortage has been paid?

I am sure that the agreement could be regarded as an oral agreement which was acted upon and therefore, enforceable.
The fact that your friend was paying the mortgage, means that he was acting on the agreement and believed that he would get the flat at the end of the road. Therefore, if I am correct in this, if he goes to court he will get the flat. But he has to convey this intention to the seller and make his position clear that he intends to enforce the sale....
