I'm the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Isle of Sheppey. The Isle of Sheppey property was put into my name in December. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in December. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors 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 affected by that. Most mortgage companies would take a practical view as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, UBS are being difficult. The Isle of Sheppey solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but UBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
