Tallents has secured the national Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), which is the quality mark for residential lawyers.

CQS recognises high standards in the residential conveyancing process and makes it easier for anyone buying or selling a home to select a solicitor who has met those high standards.

Tallents had to complete a detailed application process and undergo a rigorous assessment before they were awarded the accreditation.

To maintain their CQS status, Tallents will also continue to undergo strict assessments, compulsory training, self-reporting, random audits and annual reviews.[/tabrow]

Our experienced team have written several helpful and informative articles on buying a home.

  • Selling a property and the buyers solicitor was awful, Kerry and Kim did a fantastic job dealing with them. Their professionalism stood in stark contrast to the buyers solicitor.

  • You recently sent my partner and I a Client Satisfaction Questionnaire and we are formally responding. Your official questions all get a straight 5, but this isn't enough. We recently purchased a David Wilson property having sold our house just weeks before Covid-19 lockdown kicked in. It's fair to say it has not been the best of situations to work with however, Kerry Baldwin is in short, and without doubt an absolute star and a credit to your organisation! We had terrible delays with one thing and another, our mortgage, paperwork and all the other things that go with it, but she really pulled it out of the bag and went above and beyond for us for which we will be forever thankful. As we sat in our cars waiting to leave our belongings in the house we couldn't get the keys for, she called to say, 'go and get your keys'. Without going into all the details or boring you with the emotions it was the best moment and a story we will be telling for a long time! Having someone who communicates and is as honest with you as Kerry was with us, was just what you need when buying a home because for you it IS personal and she really showed us that she cared. I have been through this process before and I have never come across anyone like Kerry, so a massive emotional thank you! Would we recommend you, YES. I have already done so in fact to anyone who will listen. Kerry already knows how thankful we are but I hope this one gets around the office. Kind regards, Emma & Scott

  • All I can say is a very big 'thank you' to you, Hedwig, Lynda and others for the hard work involved in finally dragging us across the finishing line after a couple of false starts and trip-ups along the way. We're very happy with the service we've received from you throughout - the speed and tenacity with which you all work is exemplary. Although we now live away from Southwell, I will certainly get back in touch when we need any further legal work, as with current technology the distances involved are much less of an issue than in years gone by. Once again, many thanks, and best wishes.

  • Wonderful, thank you! And thanks for your help and your efficiency throughout the whole process. It has made things much less stressful to feel it's all being well taken care of, as we've heard such negative stories about other solicitors from friends and family. We will certainly be happy to recommend you and use you again should we need to!
