I am the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Notting Hill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in July. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers 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 sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.

My partner and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Leeds Building Society as we wish to carry out improvements to our property in Notting Hill. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Notting Hill solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Leeds Building Society do not ordinarily instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Leeds Building Society panel.
How does conveyancing in Notting Hill differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Notting Hill contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Notting Hill typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Notting Hill or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Notting Hill is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Notting Hill are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Notting Hill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Notting Hill may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
