Once you have submitted your housing register application you have 28 days to supply evidence of
Identity for you and any partner or joint applicant.
Failure to supply all of the evidence will result in your application being closed.
Subject to certain exceptions if you have not lived in Somerset for six of the last 12 months or
3 of the last 5 years you must also evidence a local connection to Somerset. Please contact the
Local Authority responsible for your application for further information.
To prove your identity you must provide three separate documents, one from each evidence group.
Please note an individual document can only be used to evidence one requirement. The documents
do not need to be original, although we do reserve the right to request to see original documentation.
Evidence can be emailed directly to the local authority responsible for your application.
