The owners have rather pushy sellers who has recommended a lock out contract with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of agreement is not the norm in South Woodford, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no assurance 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 agreement if they receive a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the financial benefit that the owner may secure by reneging on the agreement, no matter how morally unworthy that may be.

How does conveyancing in South Woodford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in South Woodford come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in South Woodford tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in South Woodford or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. South Woodford is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in South Woodford are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside South Woodford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in South Woodford may determine 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 property.
