I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Robertsbridge. The Robertsbridge property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates 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 may be caught by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
