We have rather assertive vendors who has insisted on a lock out agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This kind of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Polperro, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer is left exposed. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has executed a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be tempted to break the agreement if they are offered a large enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equalise the extra amount that the owner may secure by breaking the agreement, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.

I am intent on selling our home in Polperro and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Polperro conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Polperro. Having lived in Polperro for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
