I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Tower Hill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. many banks would take a sensible view as this obligation chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Tower Hill. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
