The owners of the property we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing firm in Coombe who has insisted on a lock out contract with a payment 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (sometimes termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from progressing with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may turn out to be unhelpful. It is not promoted amongst Coombe conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to be issued with an injunction to prevent the vendor disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in restricted scenarios, the extra payment of damages.

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Coombe conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing targets set by HQ.
