I happen to be the sole recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Burnham On Crouch. The Burnham On Crouch property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
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 might be impacted by that. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this provision chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
