We have rather pushy sellers who has recommended a lock out agreement with a non-refundable deposit of 5k. Are such agreements the norm for Cherry Burton conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of primary downsides with executing a lock out agreement (also termed a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated by Cherry Burton conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A supplemental negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to be issued with an injunction to stop the seller disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in rare situations, the additional payment of penalties.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Cherry Burton off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Principality. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel.
Helen (my wife) and I may need to rent out our Cherry Burton ground floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Cherry Burton conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Cherry Burton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
