Anti Money Laundering Regulations 2017
As with all Estate Agents, we are now subject to the Money Laundering Regulations 2017. This means we will need to obtain and hold identification and proof of address should you wish to buy a property through us. Without this information, we will not be able to instruct a solicitor on your purchase.
No matter which estate agent you end up buying a property with, it may be advisable to bring some ID with you to save time and make sure the process runs as smoothly as possible, especially if you’re travelling from a distance.
We have compiled a list of all the acceptable documents we will need to see before we can proceed with your purchase. We need to see you in person with the following original documents, or, if this is not convenient, we can accept certified ID either from your solicitor or from the Post Office.
We will need to see ONE document from List A and ONE recent document from List B, dated within the past three months.
LIST A – Identity document
LIST B – Proof of Address (Note: the documents must also show your name and current address)
