I'm the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Keynsham. The Keynsham property was put into my name in May. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. Some banks would take a pragmatic view as this requirement is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

Is it the case that all Keynsham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the TSB conveyancing list of approved firms?

Some major banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.

When it comes to lenders such as Barclays, do Keynsham solicitors incur a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
