Know your Customer (FAQs)
Our business is based on mutual trust with our clients. Due to the transactional nature of the services we provide, just like lawyers, accountants and financial services firms, all estate agents and real estate advisers are required by law to carry out Know Your Customer (KYC) checks.
These checks serve to ensure that we comply with our legal obligations and help regulators to ensure that the UK real estate industry is not misused to facilitate money laundering or the financing of criminal activities.
In the majority of cases these checks will simply involve us formally confirming your identity. Where you are buying or selling property, we will also require documentation confirming your source of funds or proof of ownership of the property, respectively. If you live abroad or use corporate structures to hold real estate assets further documentation will be required to identify the individuals who will ultimately benefit from the transaction.
