In such circumstances, we must not act on your instructions without consent from SOCA. If SOCA do not refuse consent within 7 working days we may continue to act. If SOCA issue a refusal within that time, we must not act for a further 31 days from the date of the refusal.
“Criminal property” is property in any legal from, whether money, real property, rights or any benefit derived from criminal activity. it does not matter who carried out the criminal activity or how removed the property is from the original crime.
