Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to counteract the cases that abort. Please beware that these deals rarely cover outlay by way of example Tower Hill conveyancing search expenses.

There are two main downsides with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted by Tower Hill conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is not likely to win an injunction to prohibit the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in restricted scenarios, the additional payment of penalties.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
