What are ID1 and ID5 Forms?
The Land Registry introduced the ID5 form on the 4th May 2020 to allow lawyers to certify ID when being confirmed over a video call. The ID5 form is completed by our lawyer at the same time they are completing the ID1 form that has been partially completed (section A) that would have previously been used in a face to face appointment. This means service is fast and covid secure.
