I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Romford. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. 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." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this provision is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
