The awards recognise and celebrate excellence across providers of home moving legal services. The rigorous entry process requires organisations to submit evidence of their approach to people, technology, process, professional development, and technical excellence. A panel of expert judges, drawn from across legal and the wider property profession, independently review the entries. They identify organisations who are deemed to have gone above and beyond their peers in supporting their clients and are leading the way in the industry. The top scoring firms in each category are shortlisted ahead of the ceremony when the winners and highly commended are announced.

Client satisfaction, one of the key scoring criteria, presents a mixed picture according to a survey conducted by National Conveyancing Week. Nearly 3 in 4 (72% of respondents indicated they were satisfied with the performance of their property lawyer, with 3 in 5 (61%) of people saying they would use them again.

But speed is a challenge for home movers. Acknowledging that delays in the chain, the time taken to complete enquiries and legal issues, including lack of paperwork, guarantees, certificates and permission, continue to hinder transactions times.

In achieving highly commended in the new build category, Switalskis has demonstrated excellence in its approach to client care, training and working with housing developers. The team make sure their clients are at the heart of everything they do. Richard Wisnia, director and head of new build at Switalskis commented,

“I am delighted that we have been highly commended and with the judges’ recognition of the outstanding work we do. This supplements the regular feedback we get from our clients that we are consistently meeting their needs to the highest standard. I am beyond proud of my dedicated team and the hard work they do every day, without which we wouldn’t have this accolade.”

Commenting on the success those recognised through the awards, Chief Operating Officer at Headline Sponsor Groundsure, Malcolm Smith said:

“Groundsure would like to offer our congratulations to the winners and highly commended at the British Conveyancing Awards! It was a fantastic night of celebration and great to see the Conveyancing Community come together”
