I am assisting my niece sell her flat in Middlewich. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy assessment or should I organise this?

Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nationwide and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Middlewich. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as you normally would given that all rents and service payments should be allotted on completion, 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 until 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
