I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Kingswinford. The Kingswinford property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires 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. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement is primarily there to capture subsales or the flipping of property.

The mortgage over my property is with Co-operative for my property in Kingswinford. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Co-operative?

Your original mortgage agreement with Co-operative will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. You need not do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor.
