Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I am seeking some views as to whether I am likely to end up with a commission dispute when selling my house.
The circumstances are that I had my house marketed on a sole agency agreement with an estate agent from January to June. There was some interest, but no sale agreed.
I then marketed with another agent from July to the current time again on a sole agency basis. One buyer from this agent made an offer which I accepted.
Subsequently, an individual who saw the house with the first agent has made me, via the first agent, a much better offer which I would love to accept.
The second agent did not introduce this person and the person only ever saw the property through the first agent. During marketing with the second Agent, I de-instructed the first Agent.
So my concern is that if I cancel the purchase with the second agent and proceed with the buyer from the first agent is there a chance the second agent will be able to come after me a second lot of commission.
Any thoughts welcome.
