My wife and I are buying a apartment in Edmonton. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On the day of competition we will need to put money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a garden flat in Edmonton. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Edmonton?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Edmonton. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Edmonton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in Edmonton.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the service charge as you normally would given that all rents and service payments should be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
