We have rather pushy vendors who has recommended a lock out contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such agreements the norm for Launceston conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of main downsides with entering into any lock out agreement (occasionally known as a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated amongst Launceston conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is extremely unlikely to obtain injunctive relief to prohibit the seller selling to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in rare situations, the additional payment of damages.
Finally the sale completed on my house in Launceston last November but the buyer keeps e-mailing me to say her conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?
Following your house sale your solicitor is duty bound to forward the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. If applicable, your solicitor should also evidence that the mortgage has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements peculiar conveyancing in Launceston.

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. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
