I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Bakewell. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

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." Technically you could be affected by that. Some lenders would take a practical view as this clause is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.
