Money Laundering

    Our Money Laundering policy is here to protect you and the company – it aims to assess and reduce risks:

      Why?
      The UK is a major international financial and legal centre, with a strong reputation for honesty and integrity. Unfortunately that is why financial and professional businesses, like banks, solicitors’ and estate agents’ firms, are attractive to money launderers – criminals who sometimes try to hide stolen money by turning it into legitimate income. The government has introduced measures:

      • To make it more difficult for criminals to make and keep money from their crimes
      • To confiscate the proceeds of crime

      For this reason there are compulsory checks which we must apply to all our clients.
      Being asked for identification does not mean you are under suspicion.
      The identification requirements apply to all clients when they are asking their estate agent to administer their property.
      How this affects you – this means you will have to show your estate agent, or somebody acting on their behalf, two of the following personal documents that can include:

      • Current signed passport
      • Photo-card driving licence
      • Benefit book
      • And a recent gas, electricity or other household bill

      If you don’t have these documents, you will have to ask your estate agent to advise you on how best to prove who you are.

      In addition, the company will apply certain procedures:

      • cash payments above £1,000 will not be accepted. Above £1,000, payments will be accepted via a personal UK cheque, a UK banks cheque or UK bank transfers only.
      • we appoint Jonathan Marsh as the nominated officer (and in his absence Samuel Marsh) for money laundering reporting and to report suspicious activity to the National Crime Agency (NCA).
      • we will maintain a register of the details collected that identify individuals.
