I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Hagley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?
