Estate Agency Services
In early 2022 we formed Landmark Scotland to bring localised property solutions from the wider Landmark Information Group to the Scottish market and to complement the well-established search offer from Millar & Bryce. We have adapted estate agency services provided through Landmark Estate Agency Services (LEAS) in England & Wales for Scottish estate agents, delivering these via an easy to use interactive portal, LandmarkAgent. These primarily focus at this stage on ensuring compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and beneficial ownership verification as well as enabling easy conveyancing referrals through the Optimus Scotland panel, another business unit within Landmark information Group. Further enhancements will follow to broaden the onboarding offer as well as further services all aimed at removing administration headaches and enabling estate agents’ to focus on selling properties.
AML checks – we offer AML and beneficial ownership checks at the touch of a button
Identity checks – can positively identify your customers using facial recognition technology and make sure that who you are talking to is who they say they are
Compliance checks – we check PEPs and sanctions lists and more. We can help you make sure that the right level of checks are made for every customer
Estate agents using our LandmarkAgent service can be assured that they are wholly compliant with AML regulations and avoid potentially heavy fines from HMRC for non-compliance . In today’s ever-changing regulatory landscape, that’s worth a lot. Compliance guidelines also demand that customers are checked depending on their risk profile. We can determine that and carry out the appropriate levels of Customer Due Diligence (CDD) as well as supporting estate agents with ensuring that their risk assessment processes are sufficient. While we deal with the administration headaches, our estate agency customers are free to focus on what they do best – selling houses.
This is the essence of Millar & Bryce. Since 1875, we’ve been a cornerstone of Scottish property. We believe it’s easier to make the right decisions with better informed data, that’s how we deliver extra value.
