I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?

If you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
