The owners of the house we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing firm in East Ham who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (sometimes known as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be unhelpful. It is not promoted amongst East Ham conveyancing solicitors as a result. A supplemental concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to bar the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in restricted circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

We have agreed to purchase a house in East Ham. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Skipton your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Skipton where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to East Ham.
