Hello,Is there a solicitor/lawyer here that could answer the following question please...My uncle is a resident of Spain, he has a British passport and a UK and Spanish bank account. He is about to sell his UK flat and the Estate Agent is a bit concerned about money laundering legislation, do you see that there will be any problem here?


I am a solicitor.

If he is selling his property in the UK, he would have a legitimate explanation for source of funds.

Great, so that means it wouldn't be a concern for money laundering?

No, as he is selling a property and the source of funds can be explained. All the best
