The sellers of the property we are looking to purchase hired a conveyancing practitioner in Ulverston who has recommended a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

Lock out agreements are contracts between a home owner and prospective acquirer giving the buyer a ‘clear field’ to the sale of the premises for a limited period of time.

Should our lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Ulverston.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Ulverston. Some people will buy a property in Ulverston, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Ulverston. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the owner to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the seller, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect reply. The buyer’s lawyers should also conduct an environmental report. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Ulverston based firm who is on the lender conveyancing panel. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?

In the event that you have not formally instructed a conveyancer to do anything for you and at this stage simply received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Ulverston that you're thinking of instructing.
