Hutton’s Law secures Law Society’s conveyancing quality mark


Hutton’s Law has secured membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme – the mark of excellence for the home buying process.

Hutton’s Law underwent rigorous assessment by the Law Society in order to secure CQS status, which marks the firm out as meeting 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.”

Tristan Agland says: “Hutton’s Law is delighted to have secured CQS status. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time. By looking for a CQS firm like Hutton’s the public can seek out a firm that has proved its commitment to quality.”

“Hutton’s has spent the last twelve months making access to its legal services as convenient as possible for clients across its Cardiff, Cowbridge and Whitchurch offices. Investment in new on-line platforms for conveyancing has increased transaction efficiency and productivity, resulting in time and costs savings for our clients whilst maintaining the quality of service our clients have come to expect”.

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, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
