The owners have rather pushy vendors who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of contract is not the norm in Kimbolton, 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 is left exposed. In addition, there is no certainty that just because the proprietor has signed a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the agreement if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the financial upside that the owner may gain by breaching the contract, however morally reprehensible it undoubtedly is.
