The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Membership establishes a level of credibility for firms with stakeholders such as regulators, lenders and insurers as well as residential homebuyers and sellers. Since inception in 2011, the CQS has created a trusted community which has helped year on year to deter fraud and continually improve standards across the residential conveyancing sector.
The buying and selling of a home is probably the largest transaction that most people undertake in their lives. Obtaining the CQS proves we have the necessary skills and expertise to provide residential conveyancing advice, and is further reassurance for our clients that they’ll be provided all the information they need to understand the process, options, costs and timescales from the outset. As a CQS member we’re also helping to remove barriers and reduce complaints by educating clients about the conveyancing process.
