We have rather assertive sellers who has recommended a lock out contract with a payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two main concerns with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated amongst Warfield conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the owner selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in restricted situations, the additional payment of damages.
