Consumer Protection Regulations (CPRs)

Agents must now provide full information on a property for sale to prospective purchasers and include all information that would potentially affect their buying decision

Compliance Packs are the hassle free solution. Included as standard in a Compliance Pack are the following:

  • Property Information Questionnaire
  • Register of Title to confirm ownership, tenure and any restrictive covenants
  • Title Plan to confirm the property boundaries
  • Copy of the Lease if Leasehold
  • Electronic Anti-Money Laundering checks on vendors
  • Automatic notification of any potential environmental risks

What’s more, Compliance Packs can be updated and reissued at no extra cost and completed packs will be returned to you fully bundled and branded in PDF format with a web link to include on your website or electronic particulars. Discharging your responsibility to make property information freely available to purchasers could not be simpler.

Anti-Money Laundering Regulations

You must now ensure you identify the beneficial owner of the property and determine that the client is who they claim to be. You must also ensure that your staff are fully trained in their responsibilities and appoint an AML officer to oversee your company’s AML policy

Electronic Anti-Money Laundering checks are the hassle free solution:

  • Instant online AML ID verification checks
  • Verify the ID of your client belongs to them
  • Register of Title to determine the beneficial owners of the property
  • If the property is owned by a company we can provide a shareholders and directors search to determine the beneficial owners

CPRs; the practicalities

In our previous blog, we looked at the definitions outlined by the CPRs. In this blog we’ll look at the practical application of CPRs, the sorts of scenarios that come up day in day out and what lessons we can learn from any enforcement action taken. (more…)

CPRs; the implications

In 2014 The Properties Misdescriptions Act was repealed and replaced with the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, otherwise known as CPRs.

The main change was a shift in focus away from caveat emptor, or buyer beware, to greater transparency for those involved in the purchasing or renting of property where agents are historically famous for flowery language and an economic use of the truth! (more…)
