The owners of the house we are hoping to buy hired a conveyancing practitioner in Wembley Central who has insisted on a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of primary downsides with signing a lock out contract (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 limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated amongst Wembley Central conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to win an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the seller selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in restricted situations, the extra payment of damages.

Developers normally have panels of conveyancers who expedite matters and who know the developer’s documentation and property lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to choose their approved property lawyer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a developer will not put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not opting for the recommended conveyancer is that they may prove hesitant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the case you should keep with your high street Wembley Central property lawyer.
