Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX 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.
Yes that seems fine.
Therefore the Court ought to allow the amendment
The Court will probably also allow the Defendant 14 days to file a defence
Does this help?
Yes thanks. Immediate response again. Do you ever have a rest?
N181. does the defendant get one of these to complete and return (serve on the claimant) within the same timescale as the claimant has to return its N181?AlsoWhen a document is served does that mean that you have to make provision to get it there on the date stated. I guess it does. So if you intend to just use first class post do you will need to factor in a couple of days in transit to ensure you hit the required date?
Well the form N181 doesn't have to be sent to the other side.
But the Court Orders when they have to be returned, this is normally the same date
You just use first class psot
Sorry to be pedantic.
I presume that you have to build some slack in if you just use first class post so taht you definitely hit on or before the 'serving' date
2 days after first class posting is deemed served
Does that help?
OK still being pedantic.... so if I get a proof of posting on day 1 (which could be last post), then the deemed served date will be day 3. ie i need to leave 2 full days and presumably these are working days?
Just want to get it right.
