The launch of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (also known as The Money Laundering Regulations 2017) provided clarity on guidance for Property Developers/Estate Agents. Due to the regulations now in force, simplified client due diligence is no longer applicable in most circumstances and firms are required to complete more in-depth ID verification, including global/domestic politically exposed persons (PEP) check.
