Conveyancing Quality Solicitors (CQS)

Read about how this accreditation can benefit you as a residential conveyancing client of the firm.

What is the scheme and what does it say about the firm?

Since November 2012 we have been members of the CQS scheme which is administered by The Law Society. To become members you have to provide The Law Society with information on the amount of conveyancing transactions you complete on behalf of clients, how work is supervised at the firm and commit to regular training. The CQS scheme is designed to provide a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Membership to the scheme shows that Hughes Jenkins Solicitors have a level of credibility with stakeholders such as regulators, lenders and insurers as well as residential homebuyers and sellers.

How does the CQS scheme benefit our clients?

As an accredited firm we have had to evidence a high standard of working practice and implement a number of fraud prevention measures designed to protect our clients. A firm that doesn't hold the CQS accreditation may not have these measures in place and are viewed as more of a risk. Because of this many lenders charge additional fees when clients instruct a firm of solicitors who aren't CQS accredited. As a residential conveyancing client of Hughes Jenkins Solicitors, not only do clients get the benefit of our fraud prevention measures and high standards of working practices, but also no additional fees from their lender.
