The vendors of the house we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing practitioner in Stockbridge who has recommended a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of arrangement isn't common in Stockbridge, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from 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. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the owner has entered into a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not equalise the extra amount that your vendor may secure by breaking the agreement, however morally shameful the behaviour is.

How does conveyancing in Stockbridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Stockbridge approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Stockbridge usually acquire the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stockbridge or who has acted in the same development.
