If the ageed time for offer and acceptance is not honored, legal notice could be issued for further action.

As per Section 2(h) of the Indian Contract Act,1872, a contract is an agreement enforceable by law.  The essential requirements of a contract are a valid offer and acceptance, lawful consideration and object, free consent.  

If a contract is made duly fulfilling these conditions, it can be enforceable by law and if a person fails to fulfill his part of the promise he can be sued for breach.  

Since the seller duly accepted your offer and the same was communicated to you, non-performance on his part results in a breach and he can be sued for same.
