When is a contract not a contract?

If a contract on a house is signed 'subject to finance, building and pest inspection', what does that actually mean? If the buyer wants to pull out of the contract, must they provide proof that they were not approved for finance? And how much needs to be wrong on a building inspection before the contract can be broken?
I guess what I'm trying to ask is, is a contract just to protect the buyer, or does the seller have rights too?
