I happen to be the only recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Newhaven. The Newhaven property was put into my name in February. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in February. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

I am expecting a DIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

I'm at the point of looking at flats in Newhaven and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Santander.
You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP.

Given that you are getting a mortgage with Santander, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Santander conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
