New guidelines for customer certifications from 16 June

Changing some of our forms to make it simpler for conveyancers when submitting applications by post.

On 16 June we will be amending a number of our forms to make it simpler for conveyancers to certify they hold evidence when submitting these applications by post.

This brings the certification guidance for postal applications in line with our guidance for electronic applications.

Conveyancers will be able to certify they hold evidence that supports the following application types, rather than sending us the physical evidence:


  • AS1, AS2, AS3
  • DJP
  • HR1, HR2
  • SEV
  • RX1, RX4
  • UN1, UN2, UN3, UN4 and
  • WCT.

Details of the certification guidelines will be included in the side notes of these forms. We will publish updated versions of the forms (accessible from our forms page) this afternoon.

Please note that the change in our guidance applies only to conveyancers. If you are not a conveyancer, you will still need to submit physical evidence with your applications.
