I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in September. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers 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. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this clause is principally there to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
