I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in St Pancras. The St Pancras property was put into my name in July. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges 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 may be affected by that. Most lenders would take a sensible view as this obligation is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I had an offer accepted on a property in St Pancras on 17/6/2019, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nottingham and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Are Nottingham entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
