Exclusivity contracts are contracts binding a home owner and prospective buyer granting the buyer the sole right to purchase the premises for a certain period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract stating that you will receive a contract at a later time being the contract for the actual sale. It is generally used for buyer confidence though in many situations, the owner may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are many pros and cons to using them but you need to check with your solicitor but note that it may end up costing you more in conveyancing fees. In light of this these contracts are unusual in relation to conveyancing in Tewkesbury.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Tewkesbury before retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a loan on this type of house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Tewkesbury. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Tewkesbury to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few property agents in Tewkesbury to select a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?

What makes a Tewkesbury lease problematic?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Tewkesbury. All leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can result in certain clauses are missing. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Insurance obligations A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

Lloyds TSB Bank, Chelsea Building Society, and Clydesdale all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
