I’m not aware of any seasoning “laws”. Lenders may “require” seasoning before refinancing you on a property. Let’s say you just purchased a property. Now you want to refinance it for a better rate and/or terms. The lender you’re trying to get financed through may require you to have owned the property 6 - 12 months first before they will give you a new loan against it.

The trick is to find a lender in your area BEFORE you have the property under contract that doesn’t require seasoning. Then tell the buyer to go there, unless your buyer is an investor with cash or their own financing, of course.
