I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Holmrook. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement principally exists to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of property.

I own a leasehold flat in Holmrook. Conveyancing was finished in last year. I have heard that I should not let the lease length get too low. Why is that a problem?
Holmrook leasehold properties are for a fixed term - often ninety nine years when they are first granted. However a significant appartments in Holmrook were built or converted 25 or more years ago and so such leases now have fewer than eighty years left to run. That may sound like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders tend to require leases to have a minimum of 75 years unexpired to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are nearing seventy five years. To maximise your property value you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Furthermore strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
