I am the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Brunswick Park. The Brunswick Park property was put into my name in October. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
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." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of property.

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 Brunswick Park solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Brunswick Park differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Brunswick Park come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Brunswick Park typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Brunswick Park or who has acted in the same development.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Brunswick Park from the point of view of expediting the sale process?
- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Brunswick Park can be avoided where you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ representatives. Many freeholders or managing agents in Brunswick Park levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management information sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Brunswick Park. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to double-check via your conveyancers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 80 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. A minority of Brunswick Park leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors.
