We have rather brash sellers who has recommended a lock out agreement with a down payment 10k. Are such arrangements recommended for Ringwood conveyancing transactions?
There are two primary concerns with executing a lock out contract (sometimes termed a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it could transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted by Ringwood conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A supplemental issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the vendor completing the sale to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in rare scenarios, the extra payment of damages.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Ringwood is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Ringwood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ringwood you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ringwood may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
