I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Vauxhall. The Vauxhall property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Is there a list of Bank of Ireland panel solicitors in Vauxhall on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Vauxhall solicitor on the Bank of Ireland please make the most of our tool.

Our sealed bid on a property in Vauxhall has been accepted, the vendors do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Vauxhall. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Bank of Ireland going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Vauxhall conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your property lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with Bank of Ireland and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Vauxhall.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Vauxhall is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Vauxhall are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Vauxhall you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Vauxhall may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
