The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Brampton who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
Lock out contracts are contracts binding a home vendor and prospective buyer giving the buyer exclusive rights to the sale of the premises within a prescribed time frame. For all intents and purposes, a lock out agreement is a contract stating that you should receive a contract at a later time which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer assurance though in many situations, the proprietor may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are numerous pros and cons to using an agreement but you need to check with your conveyancer but beware that it may end up incurring extra in conveyancing fees. In light of these reasons these contracts are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Brampton.

How does conveyancing in Brampton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Brampton approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Brampton usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Brampton or who has acted in the same development.
