I happen to be the only recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Ashton. The Ashton property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires 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 might be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation is primarily there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.

The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
