The vendors of the home we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Whitmore who has recommended a lock out contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such contracts promoted for Whitmore conveyancing transactions?

Exclusivity contracts are agreements between a property seller and purchaser giving the buyer the sole right to purchase the property for a certain period of time. For all intents and purposes, a lock out agreement is a contract specifying that you should receive a contract at a later date being the main conveyancing contract. It tends to be used for buyer assurance though in some cases, the vendor may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are many pros and cons to having them but you need to check with your solicitor but beware that it may end up costing you more in conveyancing fees. For these reasons these agreements are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Whitmore.
