Blake Lapthorn secures Law Society's new quality mark

Posted by Lorna Munro on
Blake Lapthorn, one of the leading law firms in the UK, is pleased to announce that it has secured membership to the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) - the mark of excellence for the home buying or selling process.

Blake Lapthorn underwent rigorous assessment by the Law Society in order to secure CQS status, which marks the firm out as meeting high standards in the residential conveyancing process.

Law Society President Lucy Scott-Moncrieff commented that the Law Society introduced CQS to promote high standards in the home buying process, saying: "CQS has established itself as 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 helps home-buyers and sellers seek out those that can provide a safe and efficient level of service."

Lorna Munro,  a partner at Blake Lapthorn and head of the firm's Residential Property team, said: "We are delighted to have secured CQS status, which recognises Blake Lapthorn's continued commitment to providing a high quality service to its clients."

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 who meet the demanding standards set by the scheme and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
