The Law Society says about the scheme:
"The Conveyancing Quality Scheme will provide a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Achievement of membership will establish a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon:
- the integrity of the Senior Responsible Officer and other key conveyancing staff.
- the firm's adherence to good management standards.
- adherence to prudent and efficient procedures through the scheme protocol.
The scheme will create a trusted community which will deter fraud - year on year we will drive up standards."
