ValidID - Estate and Lettings Agents

Being an Estate Agent or Lettings Agent you will probably already know that you should register with the HMRC in compliance with Money Laundering Regulations.

What many firms don’t know is there is also a legal requirement to screen clients against the Sanctions list held at HM Treasury. Failure to do this and deal with someone on the list can result in a substantial fine and or prison not to mention the reputational risk an infringement like this can bring to the business.
