The sellers of the property we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing firm in Matlock who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are two main concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (sometimes termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted by Matlock conveyancing solicitors as a result. A supplemental concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is extremely unlikely to obtain injunctive relief to prohibit the seller disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in restricted situations, the additional payment of damages.
