Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lydney

The owners have very assertive vendors who has suggested a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Are such agreements appropriate for Lydney conveyancing transactions?

This kind of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Lydney, conveyancers are often found to direct clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has signed a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a big enough incentive to do so because a wronged purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not compare to the extra amount that your seller may secure by breaching the agreement, however morally unworthy it undoubtedly is.
