The owners of the home we are looking to purchase are using a conveyancing firm in Lytchett Matravers who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a non-refundable deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This form of arrangement is not the norm in Lytchett Matravers, conveyancers will often try and steer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed.

They may be inclined to break the agreement if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not equalise the financial upside that your vendor may secure by breaking the contract, however morally condemnable the behaviour is.

We are midway through buying a residence in Lytchett Matravers. Conveyancing lawyer has called to say the title is "Leasehold". Should this impact the salability of the house?

Lytchett Matravers conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The key consideration here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.

On the flip side, if it's, say, 50 years it is bound to have a material effect on the saleability, and most likely wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease to be supplied to your property lawyer.
