Our success in renewing membership of the CQS, which shows that our firm meets the highest standards in the residential conveyancing process, follows rigorous assessment by the Law Society. 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.
A scheme to promote conveyancing quality
Explaining that the Law Society introduced the CQS to promote high standards in the home buying process, Law Society president, John Wotton, said:
“CQS improves efficiency with common, consistent standards and service levels and enables consumers to recognise practices that provide a quality residential conveyancing service.
Buying a home is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their lifetime, so it is essential that it is done to the highest standard by a solicitor. There are many different conveyancing service providers out there, making it difficult for homebuyers to identify those which can ensure a safe and efficient level of service.”
Caroline Murray, head of our property team, said:
“We are delighted to continue holding membership of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. It is recognition of our high standards and the reliable and efficient service we provide to our residential property clients. It also assures future home buyers of the excellent service level we will provide at what is often a stressful time for many people.”
