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 Hetton Le Hole. The Hetton Le Hole property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

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." Technically you might be impacted by that. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
