We have secured membership to the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) - the mark of excellence for solicitors carrying out legal work in the home buying process. We understand that buying and/or selling a home can be a stressful time and your choice of solicitor can make a huge difference to your experience of the conveyancing process.
We underwent rigorous assessment by the Law Society in order to secure CQS status, which marks the firm out as meeting high standards in the residential conveyancing process. 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.
Ex-President of the Law Society, Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, said that the Law Society introduced CQS to promote high standards in the home buying process:
"CQS has established itself as 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."
