I am the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Snaresbrook. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

We previously instructed conveyancers locally in Snaresbrook on the Clydesdale solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional charge for dealing with the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Clydesdale?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Clydesdale but by your Snaresbrook lawyer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Snaresbrook I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Snaresbrook for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder.
