I'm the single beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Newton Longville. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be considered 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 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 impacted by that. many lenders would take a pragmatic view as this clause is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
