This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Dronfield. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Dronfield?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

About to purchase apartment in Dronfield. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Dronfield conveyancing practitioner is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I own a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Dronfield. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and The Mortgage Works. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?

The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dronfield and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
