The assessment process and demonstrating compliance
The Conveyancing Quality Standards has gone through some changes with the introduction of both desk top and onsite assessments to ensure a more robust assessment process and drive quality through the practice of conveyancing.
If you currently hold CQS accreditation you may be selected for an onsite assessment at which you will be required to demonstrate compliance with the CQS scheme
The assessment will be both technical and qualitive, requiring practice to evidence the core practice management standards and The Law Society Conveyancing Protocol through their management and conduct of their Conveyancing department and files.
The training session is aimed at Practices that are currently or working towards CQS accreditation specifically Heads of Conveyancing, SRO and those responsible for preparing
