The owners of the house we are looking to purchase are using a conveyancing practitioner in Cookley who has insisted on a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of main concerns with executing a lock out agreement (occasionally referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated by Cookley conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to obtain injunctive relief to bar the seller disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in rare situations, the extra payment of penalties.

Is there a reason that Cookley conveyancing fees are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?
When purchasing a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
