Changes in the law which came into force on 01 April 2013 also mean that many cases which would have been able to be funded by the Legal Aid Agency can now not be. If you are in doubt, speak to one of our specialists.

April 2013 The Law Society

The Law Society have confirmed that Iris Law Firm has been successfully re-accredited under the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Having been initially accredited in 2011, having undergone rigorous assessment by the Law Society, we have once again proven the high standards we employ in our residential conveyancing department.

Law Society President Linda Lee said that the Law Society introduced CQS to help to recognise high standards in the home buying process and deter fraud in the residential property market.

“CQS improves efficiency with common, consistent standards and service levels and enables consumers to recognise practices, such as Byrne Frodsham & Co, that provide a quality residential conveyancing service.

“Buying a home is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their lifetime, so it is essential that it is done to the highest standard by a solicitor. There are many different conveyancing service providers out there, making it difficult for home buyers to identify those which can ensure a safe and efficient level of service.”

Senior Partner Claire Soltani says: “Iris Law Firm  is delighted to have been re-accredited as holding CQS status. It is recognition of the high standards we continue to provide to our residential property clients and is a signal to future home buyers of the excellent service level we provide at what is often a stressful time for many people.

The overall beneficiaries will be clients who use Iris Law Firm when buying a home. They will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.”

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 and to those who meet the demanding standards the scheme will set and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, and the Association of British Insurers.
