Confirming your identity

As a financial institution we are required to confirm the identity of every customer who applies for a mortgage account with the Society. We do this to protect you against the risk of identity fraud and to comply with money laundering regulations.

We will normally check your details on the electoral register and ask you to provide a full, current UK driving licence or a full current UK passport, together with originals of any one of the following:

  • A gas, electricity, water or telephone bill which is no more than three months old
  • A Local Authority tax bill (received in the last 12 months)
  • A recent bank or building society statement
  • A recent letter from the Inland Revenue
