Law Society President Andrew Caplin said that the CQS accreditation is the hallmark of high standards and establishes a level of credibility for regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers.

"CQS is 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 help home-buyers and sellers seek out those that can provide a safe and efficient level of service."
