The owners have rather brash vendors who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a down payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of contract isn't frequently used in Miles Platting, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit 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 a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may be inclined to break the contract if they receive sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equate the financial benefit that your seller may gain by reneging on the agreement, no matter how morally reprehensible the behaviour is.
