Proof of Identification and Proof of Address
Information Required of Landlords and Tenants
In order to comply with the Proceeds of Crime Act 202 and the Money Laundering Regulations Act 2007 we require you to provide us with one proof of identity and one proof of residence, which can be selected from the list below.
You should either send us the original documents for copying or returning to you; or provide us with copies certified by a solicitor or Notary as genuine. We cannot accept printouts of online bank statements or utility bills.
If you have provided these documents to our Sales Progression Team in the purchase of a property then we will use these documents. You do not need to supply twice. However, you may still be required to provide certified documents to solicitors and lenders and they may have more stringent conditions about who can certify a document.
Who can certify a document
Your document must be certified by a professional person or someone well-respected in your community (‘of good standing’). You could ask the following if they offer this service:
- bank or building society official, councillor, minister of religion, dentist, chartered accountant, solicitor or notary, teacher or lecturer
The person you ask should not be related to you, living at the same address, in a relationship with you
If you are a company we require copies of any two of the following documents:
- Certificate of Incorporation
- Memorandum and Articles of Association
- a set of the latest accounts.
- the most recent annual companies house return.
In addition, we will require Individual proof of at least one of the directors of the Company.
