The vendors of the home we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing solicitor in Norwood Green who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are two primary drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (sometimes referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a hindrance. It is not particularly popular amongst Norwood Green conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to be issued with an injunction to prohibit the vendor selling to a third party, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in limited scenarios, the additional payment of damages.
