Real estate fraud prevention guidelines

Fair Trading has produced new guidelines to assist real estate agents to prevent identity fraud.

The guidelines provide:

  • commonsense practices and procedures for agents to confirm the identity of vendors or their representatives
  • a list of possible fraud warning signs
  • instructions on what agents must do if they suspect fraudulent activity
  • a proof of identity checklist.

The guidelines are very good and include a Proof of identity checklist for vendors or their appointed representatives.
