We have rather assertive vendors who has recommended a preliminary contract with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This form of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Poole, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no certainty that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they are offered a large enough offer to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not amount to the financial upside that your seller may secure by breaching the agreement, however morally shameful the behaviour is.
