This kind of arrangement isn't frequently used in Shenley Church End, conveyancers will often try and steer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed. In addition, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may breach the contract if they receive sufficient offer to do so because a wronged party with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equalise the extra amount that your vendor may gain by breaching the agreement, however morally unworthy that may be.
