After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments became a compulsory element of selling a property.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Shoeburyness. The Shoeburyness property was put into my name in January. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is principally there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Shoeburyness took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
