I'm the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in New Ferry. The New Ferry property was put into my name in October. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers 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. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my New Ferry building society branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My New Ferry conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in New Ferry , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My New Ferry conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.

As far as conveyancing in New Ferry is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the premises so 'speed' is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
