This form of contract is not the norm in Milton Keynes Village, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the primary focus, namely conveyancing 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.

They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a big enough offer to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be legally obliged to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not equate the financial benefit that your vendor may gain by reneging on the contract, however morally shameful that may be.
