Home buyers should make sure the conveyancer they chose to deal with any sale and purchase is a member of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) to ensure they receive the best quality service and help keep their legal costs down.
To be CQS accredited law firms have to be expert conveyancers, provide a high level of customer service for clients and be financially stable. Choosing a CQS accredited firm can help keep costs down because most CQS are allowed to act for mortgage lenders too. This is known as being on the mortgage lenders panel and means buyers do not have to pay for two lawyers; their own and the mortgage lender. Many conveyancing firms are not on mortgage lenders panels and buyers often do not find out until after they have instructed a conveyancer.
