The owners have rather assertive sellers who has insisted on a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit of 5k. Are such arrangements generally advanced for Egremont conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of main downsides with entering into any lock out agreement (sometimes termed a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a hindrance. It is not promoted amongst Egremont conveyancing practitioners as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to be issued with an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the vendor completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in limited circumstances, the extra payment of damages.

How does conveyancing in Egremont differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Egremont approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Egremont typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Egremont or who has acted in the same development.
