I'm the single beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Adwick le Street. The Adwick le Street property was put into my name in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
I've read lots of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Adwick le Street solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Adwick le Street surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
