The owners of the property we are purchasing hired a conveyancing firm in Ladbroke Grove who has suggested a preliminary contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?
Lock out agreements are contracts binding a home vendor and purchaser granting the buyer a ‘clear field’ to purchase the premises for a certain period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity is a document stating that you should be issued with a contract at a later time being the main conveyancing contract. It is generally utilised for buyer assurance though in some cases, the seller may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are numerous positives and negatives to having them but you should to check with your solicitor but note that it may result in incurring extra in conveyancing fees.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of maisonettes in Ladbroke Grove both have approximately fifty years remaining on the leases. should I be concerned?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Ladbroke Grove is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it reduces the marketability of the premises. The majority of purchasers and lenders, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Ladbroke Grove conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.
