I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Guisborough. The Guisborough property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges 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 affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation chiefly exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
