Conveyancing Quality Mark Awarded
Turbervilles Solicitors was one of the first law firms in the country to obtain membership of the Law Society's prestigious Conveyancing Quality Scheme ("CQS") – regarded as the gold standard for residential conveyancing practices.
In order to secure membership of the scheme, Turbervilles and its staff underwent rigorous independent assessment by the Law Society meaning that the firm has been recognised as meeting the highest standards in carrying out residential conveyancing work.
The Law Society introduced CQS to help the public and others to recognise high standards in the home buying process and to deter fraud in the residential property market. According to Law Society President Linda Lee, “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.”
Andrew Cameron, Partner and Head of Property at Turbervilles said: "our membership of the CQS scheme, evidences that we provide high standards to our residential property clients. In difficult economic times and a very competitive market, CQS membership marks us out as a leading firm in this area."
To ensure that the high standards required by CQS are maintained, the scheme requires its members to undergo an ongoing process of training, random audits and annual reviews. Membership of the scheme is only awarded to members of the Law Society. As a result of these stringent procedures, which are designed to ensure that only the best firms achieve membership, the CQS scheme is supported by the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, and the Association of British Insurers.
