Fraud alerts on rise – but not by enough

An increasing number of fraud and money-laundering alerts from property professionals have been logged by the Tracfin anti-corruption agency.

Notaires signalled 1,400 sales in 2017, up 34% on 2016, mostly for international buyers and tax fraud.

Although estate agent alerts were up 140%, this was too few given the market rise and all sizes of company were warned to be attentive.
