Before we let your property, it is important that we know who you are and that you are the legal owner of the property. This allows us to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations. At the time of completing your instruction form, formally appointing us as your letting agent, you will be asked to provide two forms of identification, one of which needs to be a new style driving license or passport showing your photograph and the other a document showing your address.
Money laundering means exchanging money or assets that were obtained criminally for money or other assets that are ‘clean’. The clean money or assets don’t have an obvious link with any criminal activity. Money laundering also includes money that’s used to fund terrorism, however it’s obtained.
If you have a mortgage you must obtain consent from your mortgage lender. If your interest in the property is leasehold, your lease may require you to obtain consent from your landlord prior to sub letting.
