capital gains on selling an inherited house?

we recently recieved a house in an inheritance. we want to sell it and buy something cheaper. ive been told if i sell it before ive kept it for two years i will be charged a capital gains tax on the difference between the sold house and the new one. capital gains is like 20% i think. looking for advice on what somone would do if they were selling an inherited property before the two year limit.
