Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing

NAR supports continued efforts to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism through a risk-based analysis approach, focusing regulation on high-risk entities such as financial institutions. NAR supports the current rules requiring reporting receipt of cash over $10,000 and ensuring real estate professionals understand their responsibilities to prevent criminal activity from infiltrating the real estate market without the imposition of burdensome or duplicative regulatory requirements.
