Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leconfield

The owners have rather pushy sellers who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a deposit of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This kind of agreement is unusual in Leconfield, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they are offered a big enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the financial benefit that your vendor may secure by reneging on the contract, no matter how morally reprehensible it undoubtedly is.

Are the Leconfield conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Co-operative?
