Default Gear stick very stiff

Hi all, I have just purchased my first Mini Cooper R50 six speed 2006. The problem Iím having is the gear stick is very stiff in neutral, it does not return to its normal place when moving it side to side, itís very hard to get into gears also itís very stiff when changing to any gear and really hard to get into reverse.
Makes no difference if the engine is on or off, or when you dip clutch or not itís still really stiff.
The car has been standing outside for a few months if this has anything to do with it I just donít know.
If there is a thread to this problem already please accept my apologies I did a search but couldnít find one.
Regards John
