aml requirements for estate agencies

Why do Real Estate Agents have to comply with AML regulations?

Buying and selling property is a common method of money laundering. There is a risk of money laundering of millions of dollars by buying and selling a property. Real estate agents have to comply with AML regulations to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. According to AML regulations, each Real Estate Agent have to register with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) for Anti-Money Laundering (AML).

What are the AML requirements for Real Estate Agencies?

Real estate agencies are regulated by HMRC. Real estate agencies are required to conduct a series of checks to prevent money laundering and financing of terrorism. HMRC has published guidance about preventing financial crimes for real estate agencies. Real estate agencies report suspicious transactions that they detect during the controls to the National Crime Agency (NCA). Regulators impose significant penalties on Real Estate Agents that do not provide AML controls.
