We have very pushy sellers who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This kind of preliminary agreement isn't frequently used in Wimborne Minster, conveyancers are often inclined to veer clients away from them as they detract from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity contract they will sell to you. They may be motivated to break the contract if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged buyer with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may secure by reneging on the contract, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.

A buyer’s lawyers may also carry out an enviro report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.
