I am the single recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Clophill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates 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 caught by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this requirement primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as normal because all rents and service payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
