I'm the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Walsall. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in December. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

The mortgage over my property is with Co-operative for my property in Walsall. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Co-operative?

You must advise Co-operative prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel lawyer.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Walsall is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Walsall are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Walsall you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Walsall may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
