CQS Accreditation

Rutherfords LLP awarded reaccreditation

with Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme

Rutherfords LLP are proud to announce that we have been awarded reaccreditation with the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) which is the mark of excellence for the home buying process.

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, Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.

Amanda Edwards (Partner and Head of the Residential Department at Rutherfords LLP) says: “We are delighted to have retained our CQS status. It is recognition of the high standards we provide to our clients and is a signal to future home buyers of the excellent service level we provide at what is often a stressful time for many people”.

Law Society President John Wotton said that the Law Society introduced CQS to promote 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. Buying a home is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their lifetime, so it is essential that it is done to the highest standard by a solicitor. 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.”
