Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kings Lynn

We have very assertive vendors who has recommended a lock out contract with a payment 10k. Are such contracts promoted for Kings Lynn conveyancing transactions?

This kind of arrangement is not the norm in Kings Lynn, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no certainty that just because the owner has executed a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equate the financial upside that the owner may gain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally condemnable the behaviour is.
