Transparent charges and making an informed decision.
In response to the Legal Services Market Study carried out by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC), our regulator, has made amendments to the CLC Code of Conduct, Estimates and Terms of Engagement Code and the Complaints Code.
The purpose of these changes is to provide better transparency and more information for consumers so they may make more informed decisions about their choice of legal service provider. It is also the aim of the changes to foster innovation and competition in the legal services market.
Fletcher Longstaff pride themselves on customer service and their innovations in the provision of residential conveyancing services to their customers. For this reason Fletcher Longstaff wish to embrace the findings of the CMA.
