I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Arnold. The Arnold property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. many banks would take a sensible view as this obligation is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds.

The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Arnold.

Where a Arnold property is co-owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to amend the title as when it comes to a sale you would just be asked to evidence as to the reason the joint owner is not included in the contract, ordinarily this is in the form of the probate documents.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing smoother for the sale of the property you can arrange to have the deceased party erased from the title register by applying to HMLR with proof of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
