Apply to correct an error in a registration document
If a mistake was made in any registration, the law requires that it is corrected.
If you wish to apply to correct a registration, you need to provide:
- a signed and dated letter explaining the circumstances of the error
- your full contact details
- photo ID
- the original copy of the certificate that needs to be corrected
- any documents which support your correction
Circumstances when a registration can be corrected are restricted by law. The Superintendent Registrar will provide advice in relation to any application to correct a registration.
You cannot apply for a correction to show new information if circumstances change after registration.
After the correction has been made, a note will be added in the margin of the register explaining what the correct information is and when the correction was made.
It can take up to 6 weeks for a correction to be made.
A replacement certificate costs £32.31.
