Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s remained a required part of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand before the property is advertised. It is not something that lawyers normally arrange. If you are instructing a Ipswich conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable local energy assessors

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent advised that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Ipswich
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred Ipswich conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
