Course Overview

This course will be of particular interest to residential conveyancers of all levels.

The UK property market is an area in which criminals may seek to exploit weakness for financial gain and unwary solicitors can find themselves criminally liable under the Fraud Act 2006 and the anti-money laundering regime operating in the UK, if they are not vigilant to the risks associated with mortgage fraud in particular.

This course will examine the warning signs of mortgage fraud and will discuss CML and Law Society guidance along with other relevant policy governing risk management in residential conveyancing.

Experienced property practitioner Richard Quenby will also offer practical suggestions and strategies which you can implement in order to protect you and your firm from being involved in fraudulent mortgage transactions.
