I am purchasing a 3 bedroom semi in Sandhurst. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal due diligence on the property involve investigations to ascertain if these alterations were previously refused?

Your solicitor will review the deeds as conveyancing in Sandhurst will sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some extensions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I'm the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Sandhurst. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates 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 affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
