I'm the single recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Hadley Wood. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. many banks would take a sensible view as this obligation primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.
