As many people maybe aware the Anti-Money laundering regulations came into effect on 1st March
2004 and as property auctions fall within a ‘relevant business’ it is a requirement upon this company to follow certain procedures within this legislation.

For these reasons it is a requirement for purchasers attending the auction and transacting business with ourselves to provide relevant documentation in order to fulfil these requirements. Customers should be aware that this documentation is required for these purposes only and all data protection regulations will be adhered to.
