I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Prestwich. The Prestwich 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 proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates 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 caught by that. Most banks would take a practical view as this provision principally exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

How does conveyancing in Prestwich differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Prestwich approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Prestwich typically purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Prestwich or who has acted in the same development.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Prestwich.
