The owners have very assertive vendors who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
This kind of arrangement is not the norm in Barmouth, conveyancers will often try and steer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no guarantee that just because the proprietor has executed a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may breach the contract if they receive sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not compare to the extra amount that the owner may gain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally shameful the behaviour is.
