In principle, if you are part of a separate household but live in the same residence as the individual/family and are making a request for a certified copy of a resident card on behalf of the applicant, you will require a letter of attorney from the applicant. (If disclosure of a letter of attorney is not possible due to unavoidable circumstances, a letter is required from the applicant stating that the proxy or messenger is acting on the applicant’s behalf.)
