The owners have very assertive vendors who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a down payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?

This kind of contract is unusual in Alsager, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has entered into a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equalise the financial upside that your vendor may obtain by breaking the contract, however morally unworthy that may be.
