Advance agreement on sale of land

Sirs, Is there any validity for a non-registered advance agreement of land (which is made in Stamp paper by a licenced document writer)?

An unregistered advance agreement is similar to "Agreement of sale". It is only an agreement and hence need not be registered. However to effect a transfer of property, it is necessary to have a sale deed and have the same registered. 

However if either of the parties to the agreement do not perform the terms stipulated, then it will be a breach of contract and the affected party can sue the other side.
