The vendors of the house we are purchasing have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Badminton who has insisted on a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
This kind of agreement is not the norm in Badminton, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they divert attention from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the owner has entered into an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the agreement if they are offered a big enough incentive to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not amount to the extra amount that the owner may secure by breaking the agreement, however morally shameful the behaviour is.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Badminton benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
