The sellers of the house we are purchasing have instructed a conveyancing practitioner in Runcorn who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a down payment 6,000. Are such contracts generally advanced for Runcorn conveyancing transactions?

This type of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Runcorn, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the proprietor has executed an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may be inclined to break the agreement if they are offered a big enough offer to do so because a wronged buyer with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equate the extra amount that the owner may obtain by breaching the contract, no matter how morally reprehensible that may be.
