    ID verification

    I have a potential guarantor who is very busy professional and would find it difficult in the circumstances to meet for an ID check in person as he does not live locally. Is there a way, by using a local solicitor or some-such, which could verify the ID more convniently for the guarantor.

    Yes. Any practising solicitor in UK should be able to certify copies as true copies of originals (passport, driving licence, etc.)
    In non-UK jurisdictions, the copies should be notarised.

      Thanks Jeffrey

      Is there a list on the internet of registered solicitors through out the country? Or a professional association thingy?

          Jeffrey(or others) if you are still following this thread,
          If you were in my position, would you trust that the deed of Guarantee is signed and witnessed not in your presence? Would it be better to insist that a solicitor witnesses it?

            Yes, but insist that solicitor verifies identity of signatory (i.e. not "M. Mouse" or "A. Nonymous").

              Jeffrey, I so appreciate your help.

              Had the guarantor been more local; is it acceptable for the agent to witness the deed of G and the ast being signed, or does it have to be more a more independant person?

                Agent can witness; merely witnessing, unless with any other function, does not impose any responsibility on person witnessng.
