Austins are members of The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) which provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices.
The buying and selling of a home is probably the largest transaction that most people undertake in their lives. membership of CQS proves we have the necessary skills and expertise to provide residential conveyancing advice, reassuring clients that we provide all the information they need to understand the process, options, costs and timescales from the outset.
Membership establishes a level of credibility for firms with stakeholders such as regulators, lenders and insurers as well as residential homebuyers and sellers. Since 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.
The CQS is designed for practices that are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) that offer residential conveyancing. Members such as Austins must demonstrate compliance with the CQS protocol and follow best practice, and meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service.
