The vendors of the property we are purchasing hired a conveyancing solicitor in Chirk who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of primary downsides with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes termed a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it may turn out to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Chirk conveyancing lawyers as a result. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is not likely to obtain an injunction to stop the seller disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in restricted scenarios, the extra payment of damages.

Last May I purchased a leasehold house in Chirk. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
