I can't travel far from North Finchley. I would like to know the logic why all North Finchley conveyancing practitioners are not on all lender panels?
Before the recession most banks had an approach to risk which is different from today. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the solicitors on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have subsequently looked to extract more information from law firms regarding their processes and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum amount of transactions. Hundreds of firms have been excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms were never going to meet the minimum amount of transactions the mortgage companies set.
The vendors of the home we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing firm in North Finchley who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a down payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of primary drawbacks with signing a lock out contract (also known as a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from progressing with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires minimal or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a hindrance. It is not promoted by North Finchley conveyancing solicitors as a result. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to obtain an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the seller disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in rare scenarios, the additional payment of damages.
