JB Leitch Real Estate Introduce Remote ID Verification for Businesses…

Further to the successful introduction of online identity verification for individuals making property transfers, JB Leitch Real Estate has now extended the service to provide valuable support to property businesses, such as conveyancers, by completing ID5 forms to verify companies.

Land Registry ID5 forms are used in conjunction with ID2 forms to verify the proof of identity of Corporate Bodies, usually where the corporate body is involved in a Land Registry related property transaction. The process provides the proof of identity of the individual representing the corporate entity and also their legal authority to lawfully represent the corporate entity.

Head of Real Estate Rob Denman explains further: “the process largely mirrors the process established for ID1 verification for individuals, involving part completion of the ID2 & ID5 forms developed for business representatives such as Directors or Company Secretaries. We undertake full diligence checks prior to the call and the documents are completed by our team during the scheduled verification session”.

The ability to undertake this process online has already proven to be practical, safe and convenient during the coronavirus crisis, and for businesses handling increasing - and urgent - volumes of property transactions, this service offers a cost effective and timely solution.
