The owners have very brash sellers who has suggested a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such contracts recommended for Blackheath conveyancing transactions?
Exclusivity contracts are agreements binding a home seller and purchaser giving the buyer a ‘clear field’ to the sale of the premises for a set period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract stating that you should have a contract at a later time which is the main conveyancing contract. It is generally utilised for buyer assurance though in some cases, the owner may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various pros and cons to using an agreement but you need to check with your lawyer but note that it may result in incurring more in conveyancing charges. In light of this these contracts are not popular in relation to conveyancing in Blackheath.
