This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a garden flat in Bootle. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bootle?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Bootle. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Bootle. I have a mortgage offer with Barclays. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
I currently have a mortgage with RBS for my property in Bootle. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform RBS?
RBS must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of RBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that RBS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact RBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a RBS conveyancing panel firm.
I have todaybeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Bootle for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bootle conveyancing specialists.
