Our clients probably don’t mind so much, but as lawyers we know that achieving membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the mark of excellence for the home buying process.
So we are beyond chuffed to have received this important accreditation after a serious amount of hard work behind the scenes to ensure every I was dotted and every T was crossed, plus a rigorous assessment by the Law Society. They don’t just let anyone in you know.
Practice Manager Ellen Wood says: “We are delighted to have secured CQS status. It’s not just another badge for the website, it’s a marque of excellence to help clients trust us with helping them through one of the most stressful times of their lives.”
“Achieving the CQS standard is another leap forward for our fast-growing firm. We are also welcoming more new lawyers in the coming weeks to expand our coverage for clients across England and Wales. They seem to like the idea that we have genuine care for our clients and want the best for them, while offering a flexible way of working remotely during hours which suit them. Who knew?!”
Law Society President Andrew Caplen said that the CQS accreditation is the hallmark of high standards and establishes a level of credibility for regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers.
“CQS is the quality mark of the home-buying sector and enables consumers to identify practices that provide a quality residential conveyancing service. With so many different conveyancing service providers out there CQS helps home-buyers and sellers seek out those that can provide a safe and efficient level of service.”
The scheme requires practices to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self-reporting, random audits and annual reviews in order to maintain CQS status.
It is open only to members of the Law Society who meet the demanding standards set by the scheme and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
