Howells Solicitors has secured membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme – the mark of excellence for the home buying process.
Howells 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 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.”
Lindsey Rawson, Partner at Howells says: “We are delighted to have secured CQS status, especially in such a short space of time following the recent opening of the Conveyancing department. To have secured this so quickly is true testament to our commitment to providing a quality service.
“Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time and by choosing a CQS approved firm like Howells, clients will benefit as they can be assured that they will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.”
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.
