We're in Fairford, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Co-operative , and our solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Fairford. The Fairford property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. many lenders would take a pragmatic view as this provision chiefly exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Fairford conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. How long does it take for Skipton to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage".
