I happen to be the only recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Wooburn Green. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

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." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this provision principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Wooburn Green bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Wooburn Green conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

The conveyancing practitioner must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Wooburn Green concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
