They may breach the contract if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not equalise the financial benefit that the owner may gain by breaching the contract, no matter how morally shameful that may be.
