Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shadwell

We have very brash vendors who has suggested a lock out contract with a payment 10k. Are such contracts appropriate for Shadwell conveyancing transactions?

This form of contract is not the norm in Shadwell, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may be tempted to break the contract if they receive a big enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged party with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not equalise the extra amount that your seller may secure by breaking the agreement, however morally reprehensible that may be.
