Liverpool based Goldsmith Williams are the latest firm to be awarded the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) practice standard.
The firm, who have also recently announced an upcoming event, The Legal Services Act — Taking the law into your own hands, have received the award following a robust assessment to ensure that, as a firm, they employ ‘best practice’, support consumers and work towards reducing fraud.
Maria Rodman, Head of Compliance for Goldsmith Williams, comments:
“Receiving the CQS standard is testament to the hard work of our staff, who are committed to delivering the highest quality conveyancing.
We welcome the introduction of the scheme, which will drive standards across the industry, benefiting clients and will rightly give consumers confidence in those recognised law firms.
Indeed, at a time when all lenders are reviewing their legal panels, CQS accreditation is likely to be mandatory for firms acting for lenders in the future, and we felt it was critical that we achieved it.
Brokers can also be confident in using member firms such as ourselves with the CQS standard that they will be satisfying themselves with due diligence in all areas of conveyancing, which was a crucial part of the Law Society’s security checks.”
