The owners have very brash sellers who has suggested a lock out agreement with a down payment 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This type of contract is unusual in Saxilby, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no certainty that just because the seller has signed a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough incentive to do so because a wronged purchaser with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may secure by breaching the contract, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.

My wife and I are in the throws of looking at apartments in Saxilby and I am about to put in an offer. Is it sensible to have my solicitor on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with TSB.
You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the TSB conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Saxilby bank branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Saxilby conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Saxilby has been accepted, now what?
Your property agent will want to be advised as to your lawyer's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Coventry BS or your broker and finalise any outstanding documentation. Coventry BS will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to book a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to receive the mortgage offer. Coventry BS will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Saxilby.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Saxilby I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Saxilby suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
