The owners have rather assertive sellers who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two main concerns with signing a lock out contract (also termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated amongst Sowerby Bridge conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to obtain an injunction to bar the owner selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.

I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Sowerby Bridge. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this clause is primarily there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.

4 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Sowerby Bridge completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
