One of the first firms in the UK to be accredited, Wards Solicitors has retained its position in an elite group of firms awarded the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme membership.
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard for residential Conveyancing practices. Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms, thereby promoting a culture of trusted, expert advisers.
Law Society President, Linda Lee said: “In what is already a crowded Conveyancing market, CQS-accredited legal practices will be clearly visible to anyone looking to buy a home. For what is the most expensive purchase of anyone’s lifetime, it is vital that they can rely on the quality service provision of CQS.”
At its launch, last year, Marco Pierleoni, Chief Executive of the Land Registry, welcomed the CQS. He said: “Land Registry is committed to combating registration fraud. We continue to work with a wide variety of organisations in this area and welcome the introduction of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme as a further step in improving the Conveyancing process.”
Head of Conveyancing, Susan Ellis said: “We’re delighted to have been reaccredited with membership of the CQS scheme. This recognises Wards Solicitors’ dedication to ensuring that our clients are treated fairly and protected from fraud. We pride ourselves on working to keep the Conveyancing process simple. We do not take referral fees and focus on best practice and expert advice at every step.”
