I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Sunbury. The Sunbury property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Is it the case that all Sunbury conveyancing solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Leeds Building Society approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

About to purchase apartment in Sunbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Sunbury conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
