The Money Laundering Regulations, 4th Directive came into effect on 26th June 2017 and as property auctions fall within a 'relevant business' it is a requirement upon this company to follow certain procedures within this legislation.

As a result, all buyers attending our auctions and transacting business with us must provide relevant documentation in order to prove their identity and place of residence. Buyers should note that these documents are required for these purposes only and copies are taken subject to all data protection regulations.

If you are attending the auction on behalf of a potential buyer, you must be able to provide proof of your own identity and residence and certified copies of the buyer's identity and residence. Certified copies must be of original documentation and bear an original signature of the person certifying the document and signed as true certified copies and confirm photographic ID is a true likeness of the subject. Only copies certified by a UK lawyer, UK banker, authorised financial intermediary such as an independent financial advisor, FCA regulated mortgage broker, certified accountant, teacher, doctor, minister of religion can be accepted. All of the above must be capable of being contacted by telephone by us prior to you buying and/or on the day of the auction.
