'clarifying proposal' or 'defining resolution' or 'defining proposal' is a summary that is also used to reveal an underlying problem to an obfuscating author such as a conman without giving away awareness (by the victim) of the conman's scam.
I am an agent with a buyer who wishes to buy your property but we wish to carry out due diligence first so we offer a deposit whilst conveyancers are engaged. The con is that the agent takes a commission from the conveyancer then the purchase falls through. The seller does not wish to reveal their suspicion of the con so offers a 'clarifying proposal' being: instead of a deposit let the buyer pay all the seller's conveyancer fees.
