How Do I Verify My Identity?

Verifying your identity is an important way to build trust in your profile. We need to verify your identity before we can publish property adverts.

You can verify your identity by using our instant onlline ID check as follows:

  • Sign in and go to the My Profile page

  • Complete your details
  • Confirm the details and complete the report

The check will be added to your profile and your ID marked as Verified.

About the ID Check

Our ID check is powered by Equifax (it does not affect your credit score) and includes checks across many different sources:

  • Residency - Electoral Roll, credit agreements, BT telephone and court data
  • Identity - Electoral Roll, credit agreements, BT telephone
  • Alerts - HM Treasury Sanctions, Senior Political Figures, OFAC and deceased check
  • Linked addresses - such as previous addresses
  • Electoral Roll - details of the subject and associates on the Electoral Roll

The minimum requirement for a Verified ID is 2 residency matches, 1 identity and 0 alerts.

Anything else will be marked 'Not Verfied' which means you will need to verify your identty using another method such as photographic ID.

Photographic ID

You can add a scanned PDF of photographic ID such as a driving licence or passport to supplement your identity verification.

  1. Sign in to your account and go to My Profile
  2. In the Uploaded Files panel, click Add PDF
  3. Find the PDF and upload

The PDF will now be stored on your profile to help verify your identity and improve trust in your profile.
