Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
I am afraid a lay person is not permitted to act "as a Conveyancer". The Land Registry AP1 Form asks if a Conveyancer is lodging the application, and if you say yes, and type in the party's name, the Land Registry will check to see if that party is a qualified Conveyancing firm.
Therefore, unless you are willing to instruct a local Firm to deal with the TR1 and submit the AP1, you are stuck with having to provide the appropriate ID to the Land Registry.
I am not trying to be rude here, but the Land Registry are trying to cut down on property fraud (having lost millions in the last few years) and this is the reason why they insist on the id question if the parties to a transaction are submitting an AP1 without the use of a Solicitors Firm/Licensed Conveyasncers.
Sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but hope I have helped.
