With clear evidence that the real estate sector is being used by organised criminal networks to park the proceeds of crime, many countries (but not Australia!) have implemented anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulations to minimise financial crime risks in this sector.
Compliance can be resource intensive
Complying with AML/CFT laws can be challenging for some, especially for small to medium sized firms. The risk-based principles give real estate agents and property developers flexibility in how they choose to meet obligations but much of the industry guidance can be vague and lack clarity. To many it is another layer of regulation that needs to be addressed with limited staff resources and AML/CFT experience.
