Peasegoods has been accredited as a member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) – the mark of excellence for the home buying process.
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 its 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.
About Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation
All CQS members undertake an assessment on an annual basis to ensure that their staff have the necessary skills and knowledge to hold the CQS accreditation. Once accredited, staff continue to demonstrate that they have the required level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice through the completion of on-going mandatory training.
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme is officially recognised by the Legal Ombudsman, the Association of British Insurers (ABI), UK Finance (formerly the CML) and the Building Societies Association (BSA). Lenders including HSBC, Santander, Nationwide, Clydesdale, MetroBank and Yorkshire Bank all recognised that Conveyancing Quality Scheme members provide a service that can be trusted, granting our member firms entry onto their residential mortgage lender panels.
