The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing firm in Tyne And Wear who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a down payment 10k. Are such contracts recommended for Tyne And Wear conveyancing transactions?
This form of contract isn't common in Tyne And Wear, conveyancers are often inclined to direct clients away from them as they detract from focusing on 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 proprietor has entered into an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may be motivated to break the agreement if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equate the financial benefit that the owner may secure by breaking the contract, no matter how morally reprehensible the behaviour is.
