I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Waltham Abbey. The Waltham Abbey property was put into my name in December. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ 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 caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
