The vendors of the home we are hoping to buy have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Cowley who has suggested a lock out contract with a down payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This kind of contract is unusual in Cowley, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the seller has entered into a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the agreement if they are offered a big enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equate the financial upside that the owner may secure by breaking the agreement, however morally reprehensible the behaviour is.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Cowley , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Cowley conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Cowley is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property therefore registration formalities is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Cowley. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is registered - and most are in Cowley - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
