I am the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Sparkhill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in September. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

I'm buying a new build house in Sparkhill with a loan from Barclays . The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Sparkhill is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Sparkhill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
