Product Details

The recent update to the CQS Core Practice Management Standards (CPMS) requires CQS firms to have a policy in place in relation to mortgage and property fraud prevention (s5.13).

Policy documents can be time-consuming and difficult to prepare without a Policy Template as a starting point.

The Mortgage and Property Fraud Prevention Policy Template includes reference to:

  • Identity of the client and client's circumstances
  • Linked transactions
  • Variations in price, incentives and other material considerations
  • Safeguarding the firm’s client account and other people's bank account details

...as well as other formalities and general obligations as required under 5.13 of the CPMS.
