We cannot accept any other form of ID.

An ID1 form is the document used by solicitors and government bodies like the Land Registry, to prove the identity of individuals. It is most often used during property transactions to protect against identity fraud.

The form requires specific information about you, your historic addresses, and the transaction that the ID1 is needed for. It will also ask you to provide very specific types of documents which are permitted to be used as proof of ID.

Examples of when an ID1 form might be needed include:

  • Transfer of Equity (TR1)
  • Coming off a mortgage
  • Discharge of mortgage
  • Registering a mortgage
  • The purchase or sale of land and property
  • The transfer, surrender or grant of a lease
  • Registering a new, or previously unregistered property

Before your ID1 will be accepted by the Land Registry for example, it will need to be verified by a solicitor who will also need to check the documents and briefly meet you to verify you are who you say you are.

To complete your ID1 form, please fill in the details requested below as accurately as possible. You will also need to upload the documentary proof of your ID to the form which you can do by taking a clear screenshot or photograph of the document on your phone, or uploading a copy from your device in the normal way.

If you are using the FREE ID1 service, we will then send you the ID1 filled out with your details ready for verification either by us, or another a firm of your choice. There will be a fee payable for verification.

If you have instructed and paid Parachute Law to verify your ID then once we have all of the details from you and have checked your documents, we will arrange a quick video-call between you and one of our solicitors to check you are the person to whom the ID documents relate and to take a screenshot of you for our records.

The cost of an online ID1 and ID5 Form is a fixed fee of £99 INC VAT (per person) for this service. Please call us on 0207 183 4547 to arrange payment.
An ID1 is for an individual person. An ID2 is for a person representing a company.

Our ID1 and ID5 service uses the new Land Registry process for witnessing ID via video conference. Read more here - Land Registry - Section 8.1 - Evidence as to identity in form ID1.

We do not currently offer meetings via WhatsApp.
If you are seeing your solicitor face to face then you will need to bring with you a passport sized photo. If you don't have one we can print one for you at a cost of £10 INC VAT.

If you are seeing your solicitor using Zoom then you do not need a passport sized photo because the solicitor will complete an ID5 to confirm the ID1 was verified via video conference.
ID1 certificates only last three months. HM Land Registry will not accept an ID1 with a photo that is more than 3 months old.

"Where a conveyancer verifies a person’s identity by way of a video call for the purpose of completing a form ID1 or ID2 they must also complete new form ID5. They must also take and retain a screenshot in colour of the person whose identity they are verifying and provide a copy of it along with the form ID5."

"The screenshot can be taken by either person. It must be in colour and show the faces of both people looking straight at the camera and each face must be sufficiently clear to enable a comparison with the photograph on the copy of the personal details page of the passports.

"Where verification is by a conveyancer the screenshot should only be of the person whose identity is being verified."
* Subject to availability. If we are fully booked ask and we will see if we can fit you in sooner.
