The sellers of the property we are hoping to buy hired a conveyancing solicitor in Chellaston who has suggested a preliminary contract with a payment two thousand pounds. Are such contracts appropriate for Chellaston conveyancing transactions?
This form of arrangement is not the norm in Chellaston, conveyancers are often inclined to direct clients away from them as they detract from the primary objective, 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. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has signed an exclusivity contract they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they are offered a big enough offer to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that the owner may obtain by reneging on the contract, however morally reprehensible that may be.
