I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Pentraeth.

I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers 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. many mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this obligation is principally there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Pentraeth. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the service charge as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
