I am the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Brighouse. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Most lenders would take a pragmatic view as this provision is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
