Wannops has once again secured membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme – the mark of excellence for the home buying process. This is the tenth year in a row that Wannops has achieved CQS accreditation.

Wannops underwent rigorous assessment by the Law Society in order to continue to hold CQS status, which marks the firm out as continuing to meet high standards in the residential conveyancing process.

Law Society President Andrew Caplen said that the CQS accreditation is the hallmark of high standards and establishes a level of credibility for regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers.

“CQS is 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.”

Emily Lippitt, Head of Property, says: “Wannops is delighted to have secured CQS status yet again. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time. By looking for a CQS firm like Wannops, the public can seek out a firm that has proved its commitment to continued quality.

“The overall benefit is always to our clients who use Wannops when buying or selling a home. They will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.”

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, the Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
