I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Roehampton. The Roehampton property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ 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 might be impacted by that. Most mortgage companies would take a practical view as this obligation is principally there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.

How does conveyancing in Roehampton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Roehampton approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Roehampton usually acquire the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Roehampton or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Roehampton I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Roehampton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
