When is an ID1 or ID2 form required?
ID1 and ID2 forms are used in property transactions when either the buyer or the seller chooses to act for themselves and is therefore not represented by a conveyancer. In cases where both sides have conveyancers acting for them, ID1 forms are normally not required.
However, in certain situations, a conveyancer acting for a client may ask that their own client completes an ID1 application if, for some reason, they are unable to verify the client’s identity themselves.
Furthermore, if for example, a property is registered in two people’s names and they choose to act for themselves in a transaction, they will both need to submit separate ID1 forms, one for each person.
It’s worth noting that ID1 and ID2 forms are not required if the value of the land related to the transaction does not exceed £6,000.
In all cases, you must bring a photograph of individual or the individual representing the corporation.
