Yes, I thought now was not a good time to renew my passport as the Passport Office is very busy and is fast-tracking people who want to travel imminently. I'll apply once the situation settles down.I tried to renew my passport as it expires in Dec but wanted it for identity. Unless the situation has changed in the last 2 weeks it seemed pretty impossible. Fortunately the driving license is valid.
I also paid £25.00 for a certified copy of the LPA. I followed advise on here and I put a post it note on the actual certified copy when sending asking that it is returned, as well as asking in the letter.
I don’t think I have come across the same process for any of the financial institution yet and I am on about number 10 currently.
