This type of arrangement is unusual in Tring, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. In addition, there is no certainty that just because the seller has signed a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they are offered a big enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not equate the extra amount that your vendor may gain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally unworthy that may be.

I have telephoned my Tring bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Tring conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The solicitor has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank.

We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
