The vendors of the property we are purchasing hired a conveyancing practitioner in Ellesmere Port who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
Lock out agreements are contracts between a property seller and prospective acquirer giving the buyer the sole right to the sale of the property for a limited period of time. Essentially, a lock out agreement is a contract specifying that you will be issued with a contract at a later time which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer assurance though in some cases, the owner may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various positives and negatives to using them but you need to check with your solicitor but beware that it may end up incurring more in conveyancing fees. In light of these reasons these contracts are not popular when it comes to conveyancing in Ellesmere Port.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial premises in Ellesmere Port and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to gives security of tenure to commercial lessees, granting the legal entitlement to apply to court for a new lease and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
