I am the single recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Borehamwood. The Borehamwood property was put into my name in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook instructs 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 could be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Borehamwood for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Borehamwood I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Borehamwood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
