The executing of the property agreement is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Matlock)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am the sole recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Matlock. The Matlock property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. 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." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is chiefly there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
