Money Laundering & Estate Agents

Dawn Burdett made this Freedom of Information request to Office of Fair Trading

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Office of Fair Trading,

This is a request made under the Freedom of Information Act.

As I understand it, for the purposes of anti-terrorism and anti-crime measures, Estate Agents MUST be registered with the OFT for Anti-Money Laundering purposes. This came into force in 2009 when the OFT initiated the AML register.

Please provide the following information:-

1. How many Estate Agents have been prosecuted since 2009 for not being registered?

2. How many Estate Agents have registered belatedly following warnings from the OFT?

3. Is non-registration whilst continuing to carry out Estate Agency work a criminal offence?

Yours faithfully,

Dawn Burdett
