Rule 5: Claimants to money


Every claimant must deliver to the SRA a completed and signed claim form. The claim form shall require such information as may be prescribed by the SRA from time to time.


A claimant must provide such documentation and other evidence as may be requested by the SRA in order to support the claim including a statement of truth and proof of identity. Failure to provide such documentation or evidence will be taken into account by the SRA when deciding whether to make a payment in respect of a claim.


The SRA may, in its discretion, waive the requirements of rules 5.1 and/or 5.2.
