The owners have very pushy sellers who has recommended a lock out agreement with a down payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two primary downsides with executing a lock out contract (occasionally known as a shut-out contract) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated by Reading conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is not likely to be issued with injunctive relief to prevent the seller disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in limited situations, the extra payment of penalties.

Don't rely on moving on a set date until contracts are exchanged. Whatever assurances the people you are purchasing from or selling to make, or your solicitor makes don't rely on them. More frustration is caused to clients trying to move home by false promises than anything else.
