I have just been advised by my mortgage broker that my Hinton St George solicitor is not on the bank Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?

The owners have very assertive vendors who has suggested a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements the norm for Hinton St George conveyancing transactions?
This form of contract is not the norm in Hinton St George, conveyancers will often encourage clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no certainty that just because the proprietor has signed an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they receive sufficient offer to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not compare to the extra amount that your seller may obtain by breaching the agreement, however morally reprehensible that may be.
