I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to be out of my rented apartment in Sanderstead by 18/1/2019. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in 5 weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?
Generally one should not serve notice on a rental until you have exchanged. If you have not already done so, contact to your lawyer and ask them to they chase the sellers side, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work towards
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a ground floor flat in Sanderstead. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Sanderstead?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

We expect to receive a AIP from Nationwide this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Sanderstead solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.
