I'm the single recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Dawley and Lawley. The Dawley and Lawley property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires 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 could be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
