I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Saltney. The Saltney property was put into my name in September. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in September. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
