Willans are first solicitors in Cheltenham to win new Law Society quality mark

21 July 2011

We are proud to be the first law firm in Cheltenham to achieve membership of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality scheme – a symbol of excellence for the home-buying process.

We went through a rigorous assessment by the Law Society to secure quality status, which marks us out for excellence in residential conveyancing work.

Bridget Redmond, one of the lead partners in our residential property team, said: “The scheme was introduced in 2010 to help to recognise high standards in the home-buying process and deter fraud in the residential property market. The Law Society recognised the need to rebuild trust with lenders and insurers.”

Buying a home is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their life so it is essential that it is done to the highest standard by a solicitor. There are many different conveyancing services on offer these days, making it difficult for home buyers to identify those who can ensure a safe and efficient level of service.

Bridget Redmond said: “We are delighted to have secured CQS status. It is an endorsement of the high quality service we give our residential property clients at what is often a stressful time.”

To achieve and maintain CQS status, solicitors must undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self reporting, random audits and annual reviews. It is open only to members of the Law Society and to those who meet the demanding standards set by the scheme. It has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, and the Association of British Insurers.
