I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Carlisle. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy assessment or should I organise this?
After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s was kept a compulsory part of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand before the property is advertised. It is not a task that law firms normally arrange. If you are using a Carlisle conveyancing practitioner they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with long established local energy assessors

After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
