This type of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Chalfont St Giles, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from focusing on the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed.

They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the financial upside that your seller may secure by breaking the contract, however morally unworthy the behaviour is.
