Conveyancing Quality Scheme – Applications

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) is the Law Society’s quality standard for residential conveyancing practices.

It aims to assure core practice management standards and establish a level of credibility with lenders, insurers and clients. The Conveyancing Quality Scheme is also designed to assist in deterring fraud and improve and recognise competence and client service standards within legal practices.

Membership of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme has become a pre-requisite for membership to many lender panels.
