We have rather brash vendors who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements generally advanced for Vauxhall conveyancing transactions?
This form of contract is not the norm in Vauxhall, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the proprietor has signed a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may be inclined to break the contract if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be duty bound to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that the owner may gain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.
When does exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Vauxhall and am I required to be at the solicitors office?
Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Vauxhall you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the sale agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Vauxhall)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Vauxhall. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
It best that you discharge the service charge as normal because all rents and service charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
