The sellers of the property we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Newton Ferrers who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a payment of 5k. Are such contracts promoted for Newton Ferrers conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of primary downsides with entering into any lock out contract (also referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it takes away the focus from moving forward with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it may turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular by Newton Ferrers conveyancing lawyers as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to be granted an injunction to prohibit the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in rare situations, the extra payment of damages.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Newton Ferrers. 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 your lender is Skipton your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Skipton where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Newton Ferrers.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by UBS. Is it usual for UBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Newton Ferrers is approved on their conveyancing panel? UBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
