I am the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Bonvilston. The Bonvilston property was put into my name in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

A selection of lenders now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance.

I am buying my first flat in Bonvilston with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
