The owners have rather assertive sellers who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a payment two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?
Lock out contracts are agreements between a home vendor and purchaser giving the buyer exclusive rights to purchase the property for a set period of time. For all intents and purposes, a lock out is a document specifying that you should have a contract at a later date being the main conveyancing contract. It is generally used for buyer protection though in many situations, the seller may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various positives and negatives to having an agreement but you need to check with your solicitor but beware that it may end up costing you more in conveyancing fees. In light of this these agreements are unusual when it comes to conveyancing in Stanley.

I currently have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Stanley. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nottingham?
Your original mortgage agreement with Nottingham will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nottingham directly. You need not do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel firm.
