The vendors of the house we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing firm in Newport Pagnell who has suggested a lock out agreement with a payment two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements recommended for Newport Pagnell conveyancing transactions?

There are two primary concerns with signing a lock out agreement (also referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful.

A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to be issued with an injunctive ruling by a court to prohibit the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in rare situations, the extra payment of damages.

How does conveyancing in Newport Pagnell differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Newport Pagnell contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Newport Pagnell usually 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.

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.
