I'm the sole recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Winchcombe. The Winchcombe property was put into my name in March. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. Some mortgage companies would take a practical view as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

You will need to appoint Winchcombe solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. UBS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers.
