Land registry: form ID1 & form ID2

Land registry form

The land registry is the governmental body responsible for recording interests in registered land. Ownership rights for freehold property and leasehold property, where the lease exceeds a term of seven years, are recorded by the land registry.

With the new Land Land Registration (Amendment) Rules 2008 that came into force on 10 November 2008, new versions of prescribed forms were introduced. Further changes were made to the forms by the Land Registration (Amendment) Rules 2009 that came into force on 1 October 2009.

The Forms are available to download at the land registry website.

Form1 or Form2 must be completed by any party to a transaction which is not represented by a conveyancing solicitor and the person submitting the application is unable to certify the identity of the party. Anyone who has legal interest in the land that will be affected by the transaction must complete the form. Buyer, seller, mortgagee, tenant and landlord are included.

The form must be completed and certified as early as possible, but definitely before the exchange of contracts. If the application is submitted without forms it will be rejected.

Form ID1 (Individual)

Form ID1 is the certificate of identity for an individual. You may download Form ID1 from this link

Section A asks you for personal details (1-10), type of application (11), title number (12), and address of the property (13-14). The type of application (11) is a “transfer” if it is a purchase or sale of the property, “charge” if new mortgage is being registered, “discharge” if mortgage is being paid off, and “lease” if a grant of lease is being registered. All the official copies of the property will have the title number for point 12.

Section B must be completed by the person certifying the identity of the party. This person must be a solicitor, land registry employee, registered European lawyer or notary public.

The documents that are being used to establish the identity of the person must be indicated at Section 3. Section 4 requires a signed and dated photograph which is certified with the words: “I can confirm that this photograph is a true likeness of the person who provided the evidence set out in panel 3 above which I have inspected.” Obviously you must not use glue because the land registry must see the wording on the reverse of the photograph.

Form ID2 (Corporate Body)

Form ID2 is the certificate of identity for a corporate body. You may download Form ID2 from this link.

Section A includes personal/company details (1-7), type of application (8), title number (9) and address of the property (10-11). For the type of application (8), enter “transfer” if the transaction is a purchase or sale, “charge” for a new mortgage, “discharge” for mortgage being paid off and “lease” for the grant of a lease. The title number (9) will be available in all official copies of the property.

Section B must be completed by the person certifying the identity of the party. This person must be a solicitor, land registry employee, registered European lawyer or notary public.

Section 4 requires a signed and dated photograph which is certified with the words: “I can confirm that this photograph is a true likeness of the person who provided the evidence set out in panel 3 above which I have inspected.” Do not use glue because the land registry must see the wording on the reverse of the photograph.
