"Thank you so much for setting up this essential course for Deal Sourcing"

Michelle Houldershaw

"This has been a real eye-opener on what it really takes to be a Sourcing Agent."

Daniel Hopgood

How Much Does it Actually Cost to Set Up a Sourcing Business?

Full compliance is not just insurance and registrations. It's about how you operate every day, with every client, buyer and seller.

Understanding 'onboarding' a seller or buyer, securing them, packaging a deal legally, understanding risk - low or high, knowing 'Red Flags' for money laundering, understanding a due diligence process and of course ongoing monitoring.

We will equip you with the knowledge you need, to help you avoid those property sourcing fines!

Insurance

We work with a specialist insurance provider who understands the property sourcing sector and will customise a quote to suit your business profile.

Quote will be bespoke to your company

Beware: Some companies offer 'blanket cover' which may not be fit for purpose for your company, always understand the cover that you are offered and be sure that it's fit for the level of deals you source.

Registration:

Redress Scheme

You only need to join one of two redress schemes that cover our sector  

The Property Ombudsman (TPO):

Compliance Training

It's vital you have knowledge of how you onboard an investor, secure a seller, and finalise a deal compliantly - otherwise you're opening yourself to a world of risk not only with money laundering but series fines from HMRC. 

We will equip you with the knowledge you need, to help you avoid the property sourcing mines! 

£395

(25% discount through our full course with NAPSA)

Legally Required Documents

No one document will fit all businesses, it is essential that each document reflects closely your business and how you work, not just a 'company name' dropped in here and there.

As above, we will provide you with all of the legally required documents you need to run your business compliantly

£795

Ongoing (annual) - Approx. £1k incl. registrations, Data Protection & AML training. Again, this will differ depending on the level of insurance obtained and from where.

*Warning: There are a lot of training courses & companies that offer 'everything you need' in one place. Ensure that you understand what 'Full Compliance' is before committing to any course offered (including our own)!

Sadly HMRC and other supervisory bodies don't care that you didn't know, or the course didn't cover that, and significant fines are being much more frequently issued to sourcing agents; please ensure that isn't you. If you are at all unsure, please reach out to us, we are here to help, guide and support you.
