We are a couple about to sign contracts for a garden flat in Boscombe. We encountered a snag. The loan offer with Godiva Mortgages Ltd runs out on 28/11/2023 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 30/11/2023. Can one extend the loan offer?

The best person to deal with your question is your conveyancer who is in a position to calculate whether they should be discussing with the mortgage company, seller’s solicitors, property agents or indeed all three based on the circumstances your house move to date.

I'm the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Boscombe. The Boscombe property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook instructs 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 might be affected by that. Some banks would take a practical view as this obligation primarily exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
