The owners have rather pushy vendors who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two main downsides with executing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular by Hainault conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A supplemental negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to be granted injunctive relief to bar the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in limited circumstances, the extra payment of damages.
