Land Registry to introduce new form ST5

On 29 June Land Registry introduces a new form to be used to support an application to cancel a Form A restriction.

Land Registry will be introducing a brand new form ST5 at the end of June. Members of the public can use the form, which will act as a statement of truth in support of an application to cancel a Form A restriction.

Before cancelling a restriction in Form A in the proprietorship register, we must be satisfied that the restriction is no longer required. This will often be because the land is no longer subject to a trust. A trust of land exists when the formal ownership of the land is separated from the underlying ownership.

The form will be available on GOV.UK in both Word and PDF formats. We will also be publishing a new edition of our practice guide 73: statements of truth and updating our guidance on joint property ownership to take into account the introduction of the new form.
