What is an ID1 or ID2 form?
This is a form that Land Registry require to verify the identity of an individual (ID1) or company (ID2) when they are not being represented by a solicitor in a property or conveyancing transaction. It requires a solicitor or legal executive to sign a certificate to confirm they are satisfied in relation to the individual’s or company’s identity.

Booking an appointment

Our support staff will need the following information from you on the call:
Your full contact details, date of birth and the company details if this is for an ID2 form
What are the circumstances and context that require the form e.g. property transfer, re-mortgage?
When you need the form completed by
In order to do a Land Registry ID form, we need to open a file on our systems, meet with the individual in person, review the form produced to us, verify and copy the ID and then complete the relevant parts of the form. There is more work involved than simply signing the form as the Land Registry will ring us after the event to check that we actually saw the individual in person.
Our fixed fee for this service is £240 inc VAT (£200 ex VAT) and payment is required before or on the day of the appointment. This can be paid over the phone or on our website by debit card, credit card or bank transfer.

Meet the Team
Myself and my partner individually bought and sold a house using Hopkins Solicitors. Our solicitor on both occasions was Sarah Ogilvy. Throughout both processes she was extremely efficient, calm and professional. She always seemed to be one step ahead which, when buying (and selling) is so important to provide reassurances and alleviate any unnecessary anxiety or stress. Over the phone and in person she was also very personable. We wouldn’t hesitate in using Hopkins again in the future and would thoroughly recommend Sarah. Thank you for everything.
