There are a couple of main concerns with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular amongst Ketton conveyancing lawyers for this reason. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to be issued with an injunction to prevent the owner completing the sale to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in restricted situations, the additional payment of penalties.
