I'm the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Sawbridgeworth. The Sawbridgeworth property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in January.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs 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 might be impacted by that. Some lenders would take a sensible view as this clause is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you.
