I am the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Bucklesham. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
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 may be impacted by that. Some lenders would take a sensible view as this requirement is primarily there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

How does conveyancing in Bucklesham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bucklesham approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Bucklesham tend to purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bucklesham or who has acted in the same development.
