A friend informed me that in buying a property in Alvaston there may be various restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external alterations to the property. Is this right?

We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from HSBC as we wish to conduct a loft conversion to our home in Alvaston. Do we need to choose a nearby Alvaston solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
HSBC would not normally require firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
I am buying a property in Alvaston. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Coventry BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The CML Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease does not meet these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Alvaston.

Have purchased a a detached house in Alvaston , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Alvaston conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is dealt with.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Alvaston registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property so registration formalities is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Alvaston differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Alvaston come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because developers in Alvaston tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Alvaston or who has acted in the same development.
