I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Purley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in February. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in February. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook instructs 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 might be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision primarily exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Purley accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Purley. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with HSBC started?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Purley conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with HSBC and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
