There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out contract (also referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a hindrance. It is not promoted amongst Northern Moor conveyancing practitioners as a result.

This is because house builders in Northern Moor typically buy the site, 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.
