I'm the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Ulverston. The Ulverston property was put into my name in November. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in November. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
We previously appointed solicitors located in Ulverston on the Nottingham solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental amount for dealing with the Nottingham mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Nottingham but by your Ulverston lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Nottingham panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
How can we tell if a Ulverston conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?

In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area can help the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Ulverston in which case you should be looking for a Ulverston conveyancing practitioner and check that they have experience in transacting on leasehold houses.
