I am the sole recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Tufnell Park. The Tufnell Park property was put into my name in December. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires 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 might be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

How does conveyancing in Tufnell Park differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Tufnell Park come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Tufnell Park tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Tufnell Park or who has acted in the same development.
