I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Barlestone. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers 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 caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I purchased my house on 4 March and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Barlestone expressed confidence that it will be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in Barlestone uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Barlestone registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any other parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Barlestone I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Barlestone in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
