I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Buckingham.

I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that.
