Are private landlords required to perform these checks? I know that estate agents are now required, but it appears that the information is a bit mixed about whether or not landlords must perform AML checks. For example, from two separate sources I found this, “As a private landlord, money laundering regulations aren’t going to affect you unless you let your property through an agent,” and also this, “The person who sets up the business relationship is responsible for conducting AML checks. Therefore, a DIY landlord will be responsible for carrying out AML checks on their tenants.”
I am surprised if this is required that it would not be covered by OpenRent services, so I was wondering if any other landlords are performing these checks? Thank you!
