Alex Watts : Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : Part 2 can only be signed by the Court, so yes a court officer has to sign / initial this.
Alex Watts : Yes the signature is valid in part 3 because I assume the Claimant is represented. So yes the firm is signing on behalf of their client.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Alex Watts : hello.
Alex Watts : If it had been sealed by the court it is a valid writ.
Alex Watts : That is the bottom line.
the initial of the court officer is pretty much identical to the signatures... can the officer of the court sign for the solicitor?
Alex Watts : No, but then you can't prove it's one and the same.
Alex Watts : If it was not signed the court officer would have sent it back.
i have applied for the writ to be stayed and am in court next week for it
Alex Watts : Ok
can i ask who did sign the form?
Alex Watts : You can but its not relevant p
these signature are absolutely no doubt the same it it a very particular style.... if i complained and it was found to be done would the writ be overturned?
Alex Watts : No.
Alex Watts : Either the writ is owing is it is not,
Alex Watts : The court staff would not have signed the writ
Alex Watts : They would have returned it
Alex Watts : And the judge will not be impressed if you suggest they have.
on another note.. the fees charged by the HCEO are extortionate approx 1500 on a bill of 3800 with 1 visit...
Alex Watts : You can apply to assess the fees but that is a different issue.
