Anti Money Laundering Checks for Estate Agents

The level of detail you need

The AML Challenge

Commercial and residential estate agencies, auctioneers and rental agents are legally required to undertake customer due diligence as part of their daily business.

Obtaining the documentation required to complete Anti Money Laundering checks can impact the property transaction. With multiple parties involved this can be time consuming to coordinate and is not always straightforward.

Our Solution for Estate Agents

Firstly, choose from an electronic ID verification, a capture of identity documents and photo with digital evaluation, or a combination of both for a higher level of assurance.
