The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy hired a conveyancing practitioner in Langham who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a down payment 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This kind of contract is not the norm in Langham, conveyancers are often found to veer 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. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the owner has executed a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not amount to the financial upside that your vendor may gain by breaking the contract, however morally reprehensible it undoubtedly is.

How does conveyancing in Langham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Langham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Langham 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Langham or who has acted in the same development.
