If you become a client (or where we are required to do so by law), we may collect additional information as follows:
• Where you are not the legal owner of the property we will request details from you as to your ability to sell the property such as a Power of Attorney, Guardianship Order or Grant of Probate.
• Information required to identify you to meet anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing requirements.
• If we are dealing with an entity such as a company, trust or charity, we may need to obtain personal information for the beneficiaries of the entity and those in a position of control, which may include identity and address documents. We may also need to collect information on other individuals who have an interest in the property who are not considered to be our customers.
• Where we are working alongside third parties such as solicitors, developers, joint or multi agents, we may need to share these documents on the basis of legitimate interests.
• If you wish to purchase a property we are listing for sale where you have specifically provided us with these, we will collect personal information relating to any specific access requirements you may have in relation to a property so that we can find a property that is suitable for your needs. We will also collect personal information required to source a property for you and, where required, negotiate the purchase of a property on your behalf.
We use the information we collect to provide you with services that you have requested – mainly related to the buying of or selling of property. This includes answering your questions or responding to your requests and protecting against or identifying possible fraud and otherwise managing our business.
