Can you help - my lawyer advises that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Brecon?
The appropriate level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

Is it the case that all Brecon solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be overseen by the CLC.
Just acquired a detached house in Brecon , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Brecon conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Brecon is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Brecon I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Brecon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
