A termination right is a clause in a home buying contract that allows a buyer or seller to get out of the deal without penalty. Usually the termination right is tied to a certain date (e.g. buyer has X number of days to exercise a termination right). Common examples of a termination right clause include an inspection contingency or a due diligence clause.
