In order to minimise the risk of property fraud, Land Registry rules require that identity evidence is verified by a solicitor or conveyancer. In many cases, the solicitor or conveyancer dealing with the transaction will be able to do this for you.
However, there may be some instances, such as where your chosen solicitor is not local to you or where you have chosen to proceed on a transaction without obtaining legal advice and in those cases, you may be required to have your identity verified separately.
This is done by means of a Land Registry ID1 form, which requires you to attend a short face-to-face meeting with a solicitor or conveyancer, who will check your original identity documents and certify that you bear a good likeness to a recent photograph.
We can offer a face-to-face appointment for this service at short notice and at a fixed, competitive price. If you would like a quotation for this service, please click on the link below and we will do our best to assist.
