Mincoffs secure Law Society’s new quality mark14/08/2013
Mincoffs Solicitors are delighted to announce that they secured membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), the recognised mark of excellence for legal experts in buying or selling property, trusted by some of the UK’s biggest lenders.
Mincoffs 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.
The Law Society introduced the Conveyancing Quality scheme to promote high standards in the home buying process.
Law Society President Lucy Scott Moncrieff said “The Conveyancing Quality Scheme 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.”
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.
Una Coulson, Head of the Residential Team said: “Mincoffs is delighted to have secured CQS status. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time. Choosing a solicitor to help in that process just got easier. By looking for a CQS firm like Mincoffs, the public can seek out a firm that has proved its commitment to quality.”
