I am the sole recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Yarm On Tees. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in September.
