Legal ID Verification

June 2020

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak changes have been made to HM Land Registry's evidence of identity requirements. The changes are temporary and may be modified or withdrawn at short notice.  Verification of a person's identity can now be done by a video call.

To verify a person's identity by way of a video call for the purpose of completing a form ID1 or ID2, we can now take a screenshot photograph of the person whose identity we are verifying. We  also must complete new form: ID5.  The ID5 must accompany the ID1 or ID2 lodged with an application. 

If  you would like help with this please contact
