I am the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Stalybridge. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors 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. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
