I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Beckermet. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
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 may be affected by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this clause is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Beckermet conveyancing solicitors have been chosen. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to send the offer to the lawyer?

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Beckermet solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Beckermet 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Beckermet is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
