I'm the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Stalybridge. The Stalybridge property was put into my name in October. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation primarily exists to capture subsales or the flipping of properties.

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the UBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
