Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Which deadlines have they missed?
ok these are not serious breaches and are mainly bad management rather than something that jeopardises your case and may unfairly prejudice you. It happens all the time - parties constantly miss deadlines and it is not uncommon to ask for extensions. You will not get the tribunal to fine them for this, it is not what happens, they will get a slap on the wrist and if the breaches continue closer to the hearing and they start to affect the claim then more serious action can be taken, such as considering striking out their claim. But this will not happen at this stage. You could resist the proposal for extension but i they have good reason and the claim will not be affected they can apply to the tribunal and be granted a formal extension. You should not be penalised if you refused but it wouldn't be wrong to cooperate either
