I have used the conveyancing services of Anna Beavers at Mounteney Solicitors for several properties, and as have my parents. Anna is super professional and overall a great firm with fantastic customer management skills, and a real sense that Anna and the whole team is working to your best interests as a client. As I say, I am a repeat customer and have recommended the firm to several friends too.
I’ve used this solicitors a few times now for both business and personal matters. The team are really approachable and Anna and Amy have been great! Can’t recommend enough and glad to have had the support through a house move and taking on a commercial lease.

Amanda and Katie were friendly, professional and very thorough in their handling of my sale and purchase of property. Altogether as a team of solicitors I was pleasantly surprised at their patience and availablity.
Having to sell a house after a bereavement is always going to be hard but Katie Reade at Mountney Solicitors made the whole thing effortless. She was always there if I needed anything and was just superb. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone needing conveyancing services. Thanks Katie

Katie recently completed the sale of my great Aunt's flat. Throughout the complicated and protracted sale, Katie kept us informed at every stage. She was considerate and supportive throughout, in fact Katie saved the day on many occasions. I would have not hesitation in recommending Kate and look forward to working with her again.

HM Land Registry requires individual people who are not professional conveyancers to prove their identity on an ID1 form, before being willing to accept submissions from them.

It is usually cheaper and easier in our experience to instruct a professional conveyancer to act for them, rather than bothering with an ID1. If you are not a conveyancer or solicitor, you will generally pay considerably larger HMLR fees, and you will face rather complicated legal processes with some risk attached.

Nevertheless, if the individual person wants us to certify their ID1 for them, we are happy to do so. You’ll need to bring your completed form, a passport-type photo of yourself, and your passport to our offices, for us to complete and endorse. HM Land Registry will check in with us when you submit your form to them to confirm our endorsement is genuine.

In a landscape where property transactions can be filled with challenges, our solicitors serve as your trusted allies, providing you with the knowledge, expertise, and assurance needed to navigate the complexities of the ID1 Form – and the broader property market.
