CQS improves efficiency with common, consistent standards and service levels and enables consumers to recognise practices, such as Percy Walker 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 homebuyers to identify those which can ensure a safe and efficient level of service.
Consultant, Alan Earons says: “Percy Walker is delighted to have secured CQS status. It is recognition of the high standards we provide to our residential property 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.”
Partner, Aileen Francis adds: “The overall beneficiaries will be clients who use Percy Walker when buying a home. They will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.”
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 and to those who meet the demanding standards the scheme will set and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, and the Association of British Insurers.
