I am the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Upton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement is chiefly there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Upton accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The owners have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Upton. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Upton conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their solicitor to press on with searches.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Upton I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Upton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor apartment in Upton. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as you normally would given that all rents and service invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
