I am the single recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Harrold. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook mandates 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 could be impacted by that. Most banks would take a pragmatic view as this obligation chiefly exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Having made daily calls to Clydesdale and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Harrold conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Harrold.
