I am the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Stone Cross. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is chiefly there to capture subsales or the flipping of properties.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
