Conveyancing - Highest Standards Achieved

We are extremely proud to announce that we are now an accredited member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS). This is the only recognised Quality Standard for residential property legal work and reflects the high quality and professionalism of the service that the firm provides to our clients when acting in sales and purchases of properties.

The Law Society states that the Scheme “aims to reinforce consistency of standards throughout the conveyancing process, reduce the risk of fraud, and give consumers peace of mind when it comes to home buying”.

John Wotton, President of the Law Society, has stated that “all accredited firms should be congratulated for the achievement. The application process is thorough and all those firms who achieve the CQS status have shown that they have what it takes to achieve and maintain high professional standards, as well as delivering excellent customer service”.

Those of you who have moved house will no doubt agree that this can be one of the most stressful life events. It can be very difficult for you to decide who to use when it comes to solicitors and conveyancers. No doubt you are often reliant on recommendations from friends, colleagues or estate agents. Many of you probably feel that all solicitors offer the same service and you make your decisions purely on the fees. This can be a false economy with what is such an important transaction. The Conveyancing Quality Scheme can ensure that clients, lenders and insurers will easily be able to identify CQS firms with the knowledge that the service offered will be of a truly excellent standard.

The CQS Scheme requires law practices to undergo strict assessment, training, audits and manual reviews in order to continue to inspire confidence in clients, lenders and the general public. The standard is all about the firm’s adherence to good practice management standards and prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures through the Conveyancing Scheme Protocol set out by the Law Society.
The Scheme is extremely important as it has the support of the Counsel of Mortgage Lenders, the Land Registry, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
