I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Harold Hill. The Harold Hill property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated 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 conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. many banks would take a sensible view as this obligation chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Harold Hill. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

You will have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.

Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to withdraw.
