I am the only recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Tavistock. The Tavistock property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will 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 instructs 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. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
