I am the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Calcot. The Calcot property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ 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 affected by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

3 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Calcot concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
