There are two main drawbacks with executing a lock out agreement (sometimes known as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing 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 strongly advocated by Rawcliffe conveyancing practitioners as a result. A supplemental issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is not likely to be issued with injunctive relief to prevent the seller disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in restricted scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
