HM Land Registry has issued updated guidance on when evidence of identity is required and how it should be given.
To reduce the risk of registration fraud, Land Registry relies on the steps that conveyancers take, where appropriate, to verify the identity of their clients.
In certain circumstances Land Registry requires an application to include confirmation of identity or rule 17 identity evidence. This helps us to decide what checks, if any, we may need to take before completing a registration.
This guide explains when confirmation of identity or rule 17 identity evidence is required and how it should be given.
The information in this guide relates only to the evidence of identity that must be given to Land Registry. It does not deal with identity checks required by regulatory or representative bodies, or required by law, such as under the money laundering legislation.
