The owners of the home we are hoping to buy have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Nefyn who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a payment of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This form of preliminary agreement isn't common in Nefyn, 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 lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no certainty that just because the proprietor has executed an exclusivity contract they will sell to you. They may be tempted to break the agreement if they are offered sufficient offer to do so because a wronged purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be duty bound to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not equate the extra amount that the owner may secure by breaking the agreement, however morally condemnable that may be.

How does conveyancing in Nefyn differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Nefyn come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Nefyn tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Nefyn or who has acted in the same development.
