The owners have very pushy sellers who has suggested a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of main downsides with executing a lock out contract (also termed a shut-out contract) is that it takes away the focus from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular amongst East Barming conveyancing practitioners as a result. A supplemental issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is not likely to obtain injunctive relief to bar the seller completing the sale to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in East Barming. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. A couple of days later, the solicitor called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the UBS 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 UBS 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.
I have finally had an offer on a flat in East Barming agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in East Barming. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, East Barming conveyancing search charges, etc).

During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in East Barming.
