My nephew is buying a new build apartment in Newhaven with a home loan from Barclays. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Barclays conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit.

I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Newhaven. The Newhaven property was put into my name in June. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. many mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision primarily exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

You must advise Kent Reliance in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. You need not do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel lawyer.

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase.
