The sellers of the home we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing firm in Denmark Hill who has recommended a lock out agreement with a deposit of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out contract (also referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated by Denmark Hill conveyancing lawyers for this reason. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is extremely unlikely to be issued with injunctive relief to stop the owner selling to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in rare circumstances, the extra payment of penalties.

Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Denmark Hill can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain alterations or require the permission of another owner. Many extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
is it true that all Denmark Hill solicitor firms on the Barclays conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Denmark Hill. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Shortly after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Denmark Hill concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
