The sellers of the property we are purchasing have instructed a conveyancing practitioner in Clarbeston Road who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of arrangement is not the norm in Clarbeston Road, conveyancers are often inclined to veer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the proprietor has executed a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the agreement if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that your vendor may secure by breaking the contract, no matter how morally shameful the behaviour is.
