I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Caddington. My lender is Accord Mortgages

Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 16/7/2019, the requirements read as follows :

I am the single beneficiary of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Caddington. The Caddington property was put into my name in June. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
