The sellers of the house we are looking to purchase are using a conveyancing solicitor in Reigate who has insisted on a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of primary downsides with entering into any lock out contract (occasionally referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted amongst Reigate conveyancing lawyers as a result. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is not likely to be granted injunctive relief to prohibit the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in restricted situations, the additional payment of penalties.
