We have rather pushy sellers who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two main concerns with entering into any lock out contract (occasionally termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Arkley conveyancing practitioners as a result. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser should not expect to secure an injunction to prohibit the seller completing the sale to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Arkley is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Arkley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Arkley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Arkley may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
