I'm the only recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Freshford. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this requirement is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

You will need to appoint Freshford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.
