I'm the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Havering-atte-Bower. The Havering-atte-Bower property was put into my name in October. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this clause is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey.
