The owners of the house we are purchasing hired a conveyancing solicitor in Blakenhall who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of primary downsides with executing a lock out contract (sometimes referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not promoted by Blakenhall conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is not likely to win an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the seller selling to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in rare situations, the extra payment of penalties.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my home in Blakenhall. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Blakenhall relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
I used Stirling Law a few years past for my conveyancing in Blakenhall. Now, I need the files but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?
