I'm the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in East London. The East London property was put into my name in April. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. East London conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from TSB?

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Bank of Ireland are being difficult. The East London solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
