I am the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Stoke Newington. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. Some lenders would take a sensible view as this requirement chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Stoke Newington registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any other parties. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am buying a new build house in Stoke Newington with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Stoke Newington I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stoke Newington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
