Knaresborough and Ripon Law Firm Newtons has won the much sought after Law Society “Conveyancing Quality Scheme” accreditation. Being one of the first law firms in the country to achieve the award, Newtons is now part of an elite group being championed by the Law Society as an ambassador for a new standard in the home buying process. Securing the status follows rigorous assessment by the Law Society and is recognition of their high standards in residential conveyancing.

“For what is the most expensive purchase of anyone´s lifetime, it is vital that they can rely on the quality service provision of CQS” said Law Society President Linda Lee.

The Land Registry has welcomed the scheme as a step in the right direction recognising high standards in conveyancing.

“Other firms must follow and achieve the award if they are serious about staying in residential conveyancing” said Newtons managing director Chris Newton. “Only 3% of law firms have achieved this award. It is a huge boost for our team who have put in a lot of effort building this area of our business over the last year.”

Fiona Gillam, consultant solicitor, who project-managed the CQS accreditation, said “Our clients can be assured that their house transaction is in safe hands and that we will guide them through the process with courtesy and professionalism”.

Newtons, near Harrogate, was established 2 years ago and its highly successful business model and management style has attracted numerous local lawyers, with a total team of over 20 people and a further 50% growth planned within the next 3 months.
