Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Wanstead?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Wanstead your solicitor will request that you place them with monies to cover the search fees.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Wanstead. The Wanstead 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 may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates 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. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this obligation is primarily there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Wanstead conveyancing lawyers were chosen. How long does it take for Lloyds to forward the offer to the property lawyer?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Wanstead is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
