I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Brook Green. The Brook Green property was put into my name in February. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in February. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML 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 may be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement chiefly exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Brook Green on 31/1/2023, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health.

Are UBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
