The Independent Network of Estate Agents is running a survey to collate agents' responses ahead of the closure of the official Treasury consultation into the government's latest anti-money laundering proposals.
The government's proposals include letting agents, for the first time, having anti-money laundering responsibilities and the consultation seeks views on whether both landlords and tenants should be checked by the agents ahead of tenancies being issued.
Membership bodies for sales and letting agents would be responsible for supervising members under the proposals.
Meanwhile the Treasury document also suggests that in most cases sub-agents acting on behalf of the main agent in a transaction cannot rely on the due diligence conducted by the latter - so in other words, must conduct their own due diligence.
The INEA survey deadline is 5pm on Tuesday November 8.
