Protection Plan

Property owners who wish to sign up for protection on their properties will need to follow our strict registration and fraud prevention procedures.

Visitors will use our technology to search for and identify their property.

The user will select their property address.

Visitors will follow a registration process that collects their name, email address, and mobile number. A User account is created and this information is securely stored in accordance with our privacy policy.

Users will be directed to pay for their protection through our integrated payment partner, Stripe. Title Guardian does not store any payment details in line with our privacy policy.

After payment has been made, users will be asked to verify their identity using our partner, Onfido. Users will need to provide a photographic proof of identity and take a selfie.

Title Guardian will obtain ownership details of the registered property or properties that the user wants to protect, from HM Land Registry.

Property ownership information will be retrieved online or offline according to the registration status of the property. If the ownership records are held offline, they will be requested by Title Guardian from HM Land Registry by post. Users will purchase a copy of their title register as part of their chosen protection plan.

Title Guardian will send a copy of the title register received from HM Land Registry directly to the users account and if there are any discrepancies will be asked to complete further offline security steps to verify their ownership.

The verified owner's details will be cross-checked with the ownership details that we retrieve from HM Land Registry and any discrepancies will be identified and investigated for fraud.

Verified Property Owners

As a homeowner or landlord, obtaining a verified badge is achievable by successfully completing an Onfido identity check that matches with the Proprietorship Register at HM Land Registry. This badge serves as an assurance that the individual has passed an identity check and is indeed who they claim to be. Additionally, the badge indicates that the person who underwent the Onfido identity check is the registered proprietor at HM Land Registry for the property they have protected to on a monthly or annual basis.

It's important to note that First Guardian reserves the right to withdraw verified ownership status from individuals and organisations if investigations reveal that the information provided during the verification process was inaccurate or has since become obsolete, or if fraudulent activity is detected.

Property Owner checking process

As part of our process to verify Property Owners and tenants, we work with leading third-party companies that provide credit checking services. By accepting our terms and conditions, you grant us permission to carry out necessary checks to verify identity, assess credit history, and prevent fraud.

In the event that our initial checks fail, we may reach out to you for additional information, such as supplementary forms of identification, in order to conduct a second check. Please note that we reserve the right to retain or refund the cost of the check, or to decline to process the check altogether.

It is possible for checks to fail due to legitimate reasons, such as a newly constructed property not yet having a registered address or title number with HM Land Registry. We encourage Property Owners to ensure the accuracy of any information they provide when applying for verification.
