We have very brash sellers who has recommended a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (occasionally referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated by Warfield conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A supplemental negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is not likely to be granted an injunction to prohibit the owner disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in rare circumstances, the extra payment of penalties.
Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Warfield costs more?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Warfield I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Warfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
My solicitors in Warfield have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
