Our company as a licensed real estate agency / brokerage, within the meaning of Law 4072/2012 (Government Gazette A’ 86-11/04/2012), as currently in force with any amendments, can carry out a general check for individuals or legal entities – companies interested in selling or buying real estate with our mediation, especially if the properties are of a particularly high value, or if there is a difference between the actual purchase price and the calculated objective value, or if the origin and/or destination of the funds to be used is doubtful, e.g. a lot of cash, transfers from/to third country accounts, etc. Therefore, we will ask you for identification and representation documents for legal entities, as well as proof of origin/destination of funds from banking institutions, tax authorities, etc.
If we detect any “suspicious” activity that is directly or indirectly related to real estate transactions (sales, purchases, leases, rentals, etc.), we are obliged to report it to the local authorities.
