BakerLaw receives mark of excellence from the Law Society for Conveyancing

  • Posted

BakerLaw are pleased to announce that we have secured the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) accreditation mark of excellence for the home buying and selling process.

BakerLaw underwent a vigorous assessment procedure by the Law Society to secure CQS status. BakerLaw's accreditation begins a new chapter within the home buying process. Although there is already a crowded conveyancing market, CQS accredited legal practises will be clearly visible to anyone looking to buy or sell property. The purchase of a property will be the most expensive purchase in anyone's lifetime and it is therefore vital that they can rely on the quality of service.

To maintain CQS status the scheme will require us to follow protocol and undergo regular assessment, compulsory training, random audits and annual reviews. This scheme is supported by the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Land Registry, The Building Society Association, the Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.

Danielle Allday, who is Head of the Conveyancing Department, commented "We are delighted to have secured accreditation to the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. As well as recognising the high standards we achieve, its signals to home buyers and sellers the excellent conveyancing service that we offer. When buying or selling a home our Clients will be able to trust us to provide a reliable and efficient service to the highest standard demanded by the CQS. In a competitive market I believe that the CQS will make it easier for home buyers and Estate Agents to choose a Lawyer that they can trust and rely on".

The overall beneficiary will be the Client who uses BakerLaw when buying a home, who will receive a reliable efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.

CQS has become the mark of excellence for the legal conveyancing process and should help home buyers to choose solicitors with added confidence.
