I am assisting my step-mother sell her flat in Wolverhampton. Does the conveyancing solicitor order an energy performance certificate or it is for me to coordinate?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates was maintained a required component of moving property.

If you are instructing a Wolverhampton conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable Wolverhampton accredited person

Having exchanged you should find a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you now have a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing.

You must hand this to the conveyancer instructed by you at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that your finances are in place to complete on the on the contractual date .
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Wolverhampton conveyancing practitioners were chosen. How long does it take for Nationwide to forward the offer to the property lawyer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide conducted the valuation? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
My wife and I are selling our home in Wolverhampton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Wolverhampton conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wolverhampton. Having lived in Wolverhampton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
