I happen to be the sole recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Colwall. The Colwall property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

You should contact Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.
