I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Wycombe Marsh. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in July. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?

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 might be affected by that. Most lenders would take a sensible view as this obligation principally exists to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Wycombe Marsh I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wycombe Marsh for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

  • If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document.

You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your lawyers.
