Solicitors make quality mark

A SPECIAL accreditation has been achieved by a Morpeth firm of solicitors.

Raw Clark & Co has secured membership to the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) – the mark of excellence for the home-buying process.

It underwent rigorous assessment by the organisation, which found that its residential conveyancing service met the high standards required.

Senior Partner at the firm, Vernon Usher, said: “We are delighted to have secured CQS status.

“It is recognition of the high standards we 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 Raw Clark & Co when buying a home. They will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.”

The Newgate Street business is the second in Northumberland to achieve this accreditation.

The scheme requires practices to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, random audits and annual reviews in order to maintain the CQS status.
