What this means

The process of buying and selling a home is probably the largest transaction that most people undertake in their lives. The CQS accreditation demonstrates that our practice has the skill and expertise to provide quality residential conveyancing advice, and confirms that we are able to provide all the information you need to understand the process, options, costs and timescales from the outset.

It provides an independently verified assurance of the items listed here:

The integrity of the Senior Responsible Officer and other key conveyancing staff.

The firm’s adherence to good practice management standards.

Adherence to prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures through the scheme protocol.

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme gives you complete peace of mind when it comes to home buying.

Obtaining CQS accreditation also helps to provide access to the lender community, and demonstrates that Josiah Hincks firm is able to provide residential conveyancing advice of the level expected by clients, lenders and the wider residential conveyancing community.

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

Josiah Hincks solicitors is a CQS accredited firm with offices in Leicester, Blaby and Coalville covering all of Leicestershire and the East Midlands.

Josiah Hincks are on all the panels of all the major mortgage lenders including HSBC, Santander, Lloyds and Nationwide to name a few. We are also on the panel of building societies and specialist lenders such as Paragon and Accord. Home buyers who use Josiah Hincks have peace of mind that comes from using a CQS accredited firm who is trusted by major banks and building societies.

We are proud to have achieved the standards of practice and integrity required to be accredited by the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme.
