I'm the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Brunswick Park. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house.

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Brunswick Park conveyancing search fees, etc).

In a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their property lawyer to press on with searches.
