The vendors of the property we are hoping to buy are using a conveyancing solicitor in Maldon who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements promoted for Maldon conveyancing transactions?
There are two main downsides with executing a lock out agreement (also referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it takes away the focus from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted amongst Maldon conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is not likely to be issued with injunctive relief to prevent the owner selling to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in rare scenarios, the additional payment of damages.
