The owners of the property we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Wincanton who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a payment 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
Lock out contracts are contracts binding a property seller and purchaser giving the buyer the sole right to purchase the premises within an agreed time frame. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract specifying that you should be issued with a contract at a later time being the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer assurance though in many situations, the owner may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various pros and cons to using them but you need to check with your conveyancer but note that it may result in costing you more in conveyancing fees. For these reasons these agreements are not popular in relation to conveyancing in Wincanton.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Wincanton. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Wincanton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
