After the demise of HIPs, EPC’s remained a compulsory part of selling a house. An EPC should be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised.

We were going to get a AIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Crediton solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Crediton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
How does conveyancing in Crediton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Crediton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Crediton typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Crediton or who has acted in the same development.

The primary upside of using a high street Crediton conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Crediton know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and they were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Crediton conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
