The owners have rather brash sellers who has recommended a preliminary agreement with a down payment of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This type of arrangement is unusual in West Malling, conveyancers are often found to direct clients away from 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 certainty that just because the proprietor has executed an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the financial upside that your seller may obtain by reneging on the agreement, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.
