Under Money Laundering Regulations, we are obliged to verify the identity of a proposed Purchaser prior to instructing solicitors. This is to help combat fraud and money laundering and the requirements are contained in statute. A letter will be sent to the proposed Purchaser once terms have been agreed.


Once a letting has been agreed, the Landlord will need to approve the proposed Tenant’s references as part of the letting process. Goadsby will therefore make a non-refundable charge of £50 (including VAT)to be paid by cheque to cover bank charges and Goadsby’s administration fee. This does not form part of a contract or constitute a deposit in respect of any transaction. Appropriate references will be required from a bank, solicitor, accountant and two trade referees providing credit facilities. The taking up of references by Goadsby does not guarantee acceptance by the Landlord.
