Searches UK, one of the leading conveyancing search providers in England and Wales, have once again demonstrated the high quality and professional service they provide by attaining the Legal Eye Quality Standard for the third year in succession.
To achieve the Legal Eye Quality Standard, Searches UK were rigorously assessed by the Legal Eye team and were required to demonstrate fully documented audit trails, internal and external staff training on legal requirements as well as products review and services offered, regular search agent reviews, and a full complement of policies and procedures setting out risks as well as systems and procedures for avoiding and dealing with the same, etc.
Searches UK were the first Search Company in England and Wales to have achieved this standard in 2012 and worked closely with Legal Eye
on its inception.
Andrew Stenning, Managing Director of Searches UK said: “We were delighted to have been applauded for having such robust systems in place and we aim to continue working at this high standard, which we feel is very important to the Legal arena.”
“As the first search provider to have put ourselves forward for assessment and to have been approved again for the third year running, we hope to continue to improve our own position within our industry, as well as help open doors for other legal industry businesses to gain this recognition, by a reputable and professional firm such as Legal Eye, that they too deserve.”
As a firm specialising in the provision of residential and commercial searches, Andrew Stenning explained: “We knew that we would be unable to apply for Lexcel, which is a widely respected quality kite-mark among solicitors, denoting high levels of risk and compliance systems and procedures. However, we deserve to be recognised and since 2012 we have received a thorough annual assessment from Legal Eye to ensure we are fulfilling our risk and compliance responsibilities.”
