I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Hedge End. I have a mortgage agreed with Aldermore. 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 have 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 Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Hedge End agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The owners have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Hedge End. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Aldermore going?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Hedge End conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

Should I be concerned that estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Hedge End conveyancing company?
As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all recommend solicitors to choose. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.
