Anti-Money Laundering In line with The Money Laundering Regulations 2007, as a regulated profession, we are duty bound to carry out due diligence on all of our clients to confirm their identity. Rather than traditional methods in which you would have to produce multiple utility bills and a photographic ID, we use an electronic verification system. This system allows us to verify you from basic details using electronic data. However, it is not a credit check of any kind so will have no effect on you or your credit history. By signing an agreement as the Purchaser, you understand that we will undertake a search with Experian for the purposes of verifying your identity. To do so, Experian may check the details you supply against any particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access. They may also use your details in the future to assist other companies for verification purposes. A record of the search will be retained.
Viewing Arrangements - Strictly by arrangement with D R Kivell & Partners. Tel: 01822 810810. All viewings are to be accompanied without exception. Walking the land unaccompanied is strictly forbidden.
