CQS Offerings

CQS Offerings

The new Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) Core Practice Management Standards (CPMS) and Guidance was updated on 1 st May 2022.

CQS Policies

The CS Partnership has written the technical property policies required in the updated CPMS, which fall outside the scope of risk and compliance, being:

  • Updated SDLT Policy (Requirement 5.16)
  • Updated Leasehold Policy (Requirement 5.17)
  • Updated Policy for dealing with Lenders (Requirement 6.4)

The policies are written in word, so of course, can be tailored by you to suit your firm.
This core pack is just £350.00 plus VAT. To get your copy, please contact us here

Advice Sheets / Checklists

The updated CPMS has two major themes running through it, both of which will impact your team’s behaviours and documentation that you send to clients.  The first is that your practice must give information to clients in a way that they can understand, and the second is that if your team’s actions are not recorded on every matter, they are treated as though they did not happen.  We have therefore drafted the following advice sheets and checklists:

To send to your clients –

  • Updated SDLT/LTT Advice Sheet, Client Confirmation Forms (SDLT/LTT), and Client Declaration Forms (SDLT/LTT)
  • Explanatory sheet explaining the differences between freehold/leasehold property

To embed either in your CMS or paper files –

  • CQS compliant pre-exchange and pre-completion checklists for sale matters
  • CQS compliant pre-exchange and pre-completion checklists for purchase matters
  • CQS compliant post-completion checklists to reduce requisition numbers

These documents are written in word, so of course can be tailored to suit your firm. This core pack is just £350.00 plus VAT. To get your copy, please contact us here
