After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a required component of moving house. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned prior to the property being put on the market. It is not something that law firms ordinarily arrange. Where you are using a Cilcain conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable Cilcain providers

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Cilcain. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
