I am the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Moreton In Marsh. The Moreton In Marsh property was put into my name in October. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in October. Do I have to wait 6 months 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 could be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
We expect to receive a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Moreton In Marsh solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Moreton In Marsh solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Moreton In Marsh is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
