CQS Accreditation

CQS Accreditation – Excellence Award for Conveyancers

Excellence Award for Conveyancers

A. A. Holmes Solicitors have been awarded Conveyancing Quality Scheme Accreditation by the Law Society – the mark of excellence for the home buying process.

A A Holmes 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.

Law Society President, Linda Lee, says that the Law Society introduced CQS to help to recognise high standards in the home buying process.

CQS improves efficiency with common, consistent standards and service levels and enables consumers to recognise practices that provide a quality residential conveyancing service. There are many different conveyancing service providers out there, making it difficult for home buyers to identify those which can ensure a safe and efficient level of service.

The scheme requires practices to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self reporting, random audits and annual reviews to maintain CQS status. It is open only to members of the Law Society and to those who meet the demanding standards of the scheme and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.

As an accredited CQS member, A A Holmes Solicitors must only accept conveyancing instructions where it can meet its commitment to the provision of an expert and professional service to clients.  This means you as the client:

  • will receive advice on the steps in the Conveyancing process and what you can expect from your Conveyancing solicitor
  • you will be regularly informed of progress in your sale or purchase
  • your questions will be answered promptly and
  • you will be informed about any problems as soon as they occur
