I happen to be the only recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Isle of Sheppey. The Isle of Sheppey property was put into my name in September. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in September. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.
We were going to get a DIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Isle of Sheppey solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Isle of Sheppey bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Isle of Sheppey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your conveyancer must comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
