Problem with lawn moss
I intend to kill lawn moss. May I leave the dead moss on the lawn to rot? Unsightly, I know, but I recall you dealing with this some tome ago

Lawn moss when killed with a mosskiller can be left in place or raked out, or ripped out with a scarifier which can be hired.
Raking or scarifiying helps but is a lot of work.
The grass should be given lawn feed to boost its growth and the moss, if left, will not be noticed.
If the grass is very thin after moss killing, and raking, lawn seed can be over-sown.
Problem with moss on tarmacadm
I wonder what is the best product to put on the tarmacadam to kill moss, When is the best time to apply and do you do it when the ground is dry.

There are various products such as Mossgo and Moss buster, based on a variety of chemicals. How well they work varies and depends much on careful application following the instructions carefully.
When is the best time to scarify a lawn?

Scarification can be done to remove moss and dead thatch in late March when growth is picking up so it does not look bare for too long.
Over-sow with grass-seed to thicken the lawn and apply some lawn feed also.

Problem with moss on lawn
Is November a bad time to apply Iron Sulphate on the lawn to kill out the moss?
And lastly When is is a good time to prune (Heavy) the apple trees?

Iron sulphate can be used now for moss control in a lawn.
Apples trees can be pruned in winter. Do not prune all in one go, but spread it out over 3 years.
Boggy lawn problems
My lawn is boggy perhaps due to being on an incline and getting runoff from garden at back. However the problem now is that when I mow the lawn large patches of black wet spawnlike fungus/algae(?) have seeped up. It looks like black frogspawn. This is the garden of a new house so I imagine that the soil is just whatever the builder threw down and sowed lawn seed over.

These are algae that like damp ground. Trying to control these is a waste of time unless the excess water is removed.
If you have no drainage outlet, you might consider a soak-pit to take water off the surface.
