Anti-Money Laundering

In line with The Money Laundering Regulations 2007, as a regulated profession, we are duty bound to carry out due diligence on all of our clients to confirm their identity. Rather than traditional methods in which you would have to produce multiple utility bills and a photographic ID, we use an electronic verification system. This system allows us to verify you from basic details using electronic data. However, it is not a credit check of any kind so will have no effect on you or your credit history. By signing an agreement as the Purchaser, you understand that we will undertake a search with Experian for the purposes of verifying your identity. To do so, Experian may check the details you supply against any particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access. They may also use your details in the future to assist other companies for verification purposes. A record of the search will be retained.

The agent has not tested any apparatus, equipment, fixtures and fittings, or services, so cannot verify that they are in working order or fit for the purpose. The buyer is advised to obtain verification from his or her professional buyer. References to the tenure of the property are based on information supplied by the vendor. The agents have not had sight of the title documents. The buyer is advised to obtain verification from their solicitor. You are advised to check the availability of any property before travelling any distance to view.
