Do conveyancers request an advanced payment when it comes to conveyancing in Horwich?

The closing balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Horwich. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Horwich?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Horwich. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.
We were going to get a AIP from Kent Reliance this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Kent Reliance recommend any Horwich solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Horwich solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.
At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Horwich accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Horwich. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with RBS going?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Horwich conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the RBS approved list. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Horwich.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Horwich I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Horwich suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
As a tenant I am on the hook for a maintenance contribution for my flat in Horwich. Due to losing my job and personal issues I fell behind with remittance. I negotiated a clearance schedule but there is still approximately £2000 due in arrears.
I want to dispose of the property and I am nervous that this will threaten to derail the sale if I have to settle the arrears now. I'd like to sell up and then repay the debt from the proceeds - is this viable?
It would be wise to clarify with the conveyancer conducting your Horwich conveyancing but one option may be to arrange for the arrears to be passed to the purchasers. The contractual price due would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they take on. They could then discharge the fees once they are the owners.
