I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in West Barnes. The West Barnes property was put into my name in May. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in May. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this clause chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

I am expecting a DIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your West Barnes postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in West Barnes.
