I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Baildon. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this obligation is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I have a semi-detached Edwardian house in Baildon. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Baildon and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

How does conveyancing in Baildon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Baildon contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because new home sellers in Baildon typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Baildon or who has acted in the same development.
