The owners have rather pushy vendors who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements promoted for Wotton under Edge conveyancing transactions?
This form of contract is unusual in Wotton under Edge, 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 is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has entered into a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough incentive to do so because a wronged buyer with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equalise the financial benefit that your seller may obtain by reneging on the agreement, however morally unworthy that may be.

Just acquired a semi-detached house in Wotton under Edge , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Wotton under Edge conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check that my purchase is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Wotton under Edge is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I'm buying a new build house in Wotton under Edge with a loan from Virgin Money. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it may jeopardize my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
