The owners of the home we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Millwall who has insisted on a lock out agreement with a down payment 10k. Are such contracts recommended for Millwall conveyancing transactions?
This kind of preliminary agreement isn't common in Millwall, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the proprietor has executed a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they are offered a big enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equalise the financial upside that your vendor may obtain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally condemnable that may be.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Millwall I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Millwall in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
