I happen to be the single recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Millom. The Millom property was put into my name in June. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires solicitors 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. many banks would take a sensible view as this requirement is chiefly there to capture subsales or the flipping of property.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Millom. I have a mortgage agreed with Nationwide. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
