The owners have rather assertive vendors who has insisted on a lock out agreement with a payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of main downsides with signing a lock out agreement (occasionally termed a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated by Pencoed conveyancing lawyers as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to win an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the owner selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in limited situations, the extra payment of penalties.
We're in Pencoed, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is TSB , and our solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
The deeds to our home can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Pencoed 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

If duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the property.

I have just started marketing my ground floor apartment in Pencoed.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated but I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you clear the invoice as normal as all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allottedon completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
