WARNING
If you dishonestly enter information or make a statement that you know is, or might be, untrue or
misleading, and intend by doing so to make a gain for yourself or another person, or to cause loss or
the risk of loss to another person, you may commit the offence of fraud under section 1 of the Fraud
Act 2006, the maximum penalty for which is 10 years’ imprisonment or an unlimited fine, or both.
Both section A and section B of this form must be completed, dated and signed no more than three
months before lodgement of an application with HM Land Registry.
Who needs to complete this form?
Any person who is not a conveyancer, or who is not a UK bank or building society, who is lodging one of
the following applications with HM Land Registry.
Transfers (whether or not for value).
Transfers and deeds relating to the appointment or retirement of trustees.
Leases (whether or not for value) that are being registered.
Charges (mortgages) that are being registered.
Discharge of a charge in form DS1.
Release of a charge in form DS3.
Surrenders of leases.
Most voluntary and compulsory applications for first registration where the title deeds have been lost
or destroyed.
All other applications for compulsory first registration completed on and after 10 November 2008.
Any person who is a party to one of the above transactions who is not represented by a conveyancer
where the application is being lodged by someone who is also not a conveyancer.
Any person who is a party to one of the above transactions who is not represented by a conveyancer,
and although the application is being lodged by a conveyancer, that conveyancer is not able to confirm
that they are satisfied that sufficient steps have been taken to verify the person’s identity.
Please note that where the application is being lodged by more than one person, or a party to a transaction
comprises more than one person, each one must complete a separate form and produce evidence of their
identity.
This form can also be used to provide evidence of identity for an attorney in the circumstances described in
HM Land Registry’s practice guide 67 (see below).
NOTE 1: This form does not have to be completed for voluntary first registrations unless the title deeds are
lost or have been destroyed, or for charges or leases which are merely being noted.
NOTE 2: This form is also not required where the true value of the land to which the transaction relates is not
more than £6,000, or if HM Land Registry has issued a facility letter in respect of an individual’s identity.
For exceptions to our requirement for evidence of identity for first registrations where the deeds have been
lost or destroyed, please see practice guide 2: first registration of title where deeds have been lost or
destroyed.
Why do I have to complete this form?
We are asking for this information to guard against registration fraud. It is important that where an applicant,
or parties to a transaction are not represented by a conveyancer or where title deeds have been lost or
destroyed, that evidence of identity is produced to enable registration to proceed.
How do I complete this form?
You must complete section A. You must then get your identity verified by a conveyancer, a Chartered Legal
Executive or by personally attending one of our customer information centres. You will need to take evidence
of your identity with you including a colour passport-size photograph taken in the last three months which
must be on photographic paper and in which your face is clearly visible. Please see sections B3 and B4 for
the types of evidence which will be needed.
If you are having your identity verified by a conveyancer you will need to take two identical passport-size
photographs which are less than three months old.
The conveyancer, Chartered Legal Executive, HM Land Registry officer or other approved verifier will
complete section B of this form. Conveyancers and Chartered Legal Executives may charge a fee to verify
your identity.
Members of the UK armed forces serving overseas may also have their identity verified by a serving officer.
Both section A and section B of this form lodged in support of an application must be completed,
dated and signed no more than three months before the time of lodgement.
Information about completing this form can be found in:
Completing forms ID1 and ID2, if you are not a conveyancer, and
Completing the evidence of identity panels on forms AP1, FR1 and DS2, if you are not a conveyancer, or
practice guide 67: evidence of identity conveyancers, if you are a conveyancer.
All of our guides and forms are available on the GOV.UK website www.gov.uk.
We strongly advise that you use these guides. In addition to providing information about this form they also
explain how you should complete certain panels of the application form(s) you will also have to lodge.
A conveyancer is someone authorised under the Legal Services Act 2007 to provide legal services relating to
conveyancing and land registration and includes solicitors, licensed conveyancers, and conveyancing
practitioners authorised by CILEx Regulation to undertake reserved instrument activities who hold practising
certificates. A paralegal cannot verify identity.
Please note that if your application is not in order, including if the wrong forms are used, the
application might not be accepted for registration.
What should I do if I want HM Land Registry to verify my identity?
If you plan to visit a HM Land Registry customer information centre, you must telephone first to make an
appointment and to check that the evidence you intend to produce is sufficient.
Our customer information centres are open between 8.30am and 6pm on Mondays to Fridays. You must
always make an appointment, giving us at least 72 hours’ notice. To make an appointment telephone

Please note that we will not verify your identity in advance of you making your application and if we
are unable to confirm your identity your application will be rejected. Please note also, that all
individuals for whom verification of identity is required must attend at the same time. HM Land
Registry will retain this form.
If you can’t go to a conveyancer and are not able to attend one of our customer information centres to have
your identity verified, you should contact Customer Support to discuss whether alternative arrangements are
possible. You can contact Customer Support at customersupport@landregistry.gov.uk or by telephoning
0300 006 0411 from Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm.
