Improved client identity verification training with Propertymark

We’re really pleased to be running an identity session with Propertymark and the DCMS for estate agents on the 6th of September.  This will be hosted by Timothy Douglas, Head of Policy & Campaigns, with Eleanor Curry, Head of Market Development at DCMS. For event and joining details visit Propertymark Events.

The residential property market continues to be a high-risk target area for fraudsters. This webinar will explain what the MyIdentity® scheme is, how it ensures that estate agents meet their obligations and do not fall foul of HMRC obligations.  Recent industry research highlighted that nearly one in five property firms have seen a rise in criminals attempting to launder money or commit financial crime through their businesses in the last year.

As a result of the Government’s Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework, the UK property industry has come together to support the development of a digital identity trust scheme for the home buying and selling process, known as MyIdentity®.

MyIdentity® has been specifically designed to meet the needs of all stakeholders within the residential sales process to help the industry increase the barriers to fraud and create a set of standards to improve how client identity verification is done.

We hope you’ll be able to attend.
