We're in Turvey, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Barclays , and our lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

I'm the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Turvey. The Turvey property was put into my name in May. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors 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. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this clause primarily exists to identify subsales or the flipping of property.
