I acquired my apartment on 10 June and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Cinderford expressed confidence that it would be dealt with inside ten days. Are titles in Cinderford uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Cinderford registration formalities.

As of today in the region of 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property so post completion formalities is not typically primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Cinderford with a loan from Nottingham Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with Nottingham Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
