The owners of the property we are purchasing are using a conveyancing firm in West London who has insisted on a lock out contract with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are two primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (occasionally referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires minimal or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular by West London conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A supplemental negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to secure an injunction to prevent the seller selling to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in rare situations, the additional payment of penalties.

As far as conveyancing in West London registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
