Hello my name is ***** ***** 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 as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Just so that I am clear, the matter has been to Court and you lost? Were you aware of the proceedings please?
nope - the matter is going to court - i have had a summons and submitted my defence - i also sent a
REQUEST FOR FURTHER INFORMATION UNDER CPR PART 18
but i've had a reply that he does not want to answer this
as this relates to seeing the accounts for the business of which i was a partner can i apply for a court order to enforce it?
Has the matter been allocated to track please?
i have read (online) that this is not relevant for small claims?
yes allocated to track
I just wanted to check.
In that case you need to apply to the Court using form N244
That the Defendant reply and/or answer this.
So yes you can apply to the Court for an Order
The Court will set the matter down for a hearing and you can ask for costs of the application
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what do i put into
"what order are you asking the court to make and why?"
You want the partner to answer the questions
Under Part 18
question 4 - answer is the request
If at least 14 days has gone by you can apply to Court.
5 - do i want it delay with without a hearing?
and how to answer questions 8 & 10?
5 - you must have a hearing, you can tick without but the Court will list it
8 - District Judge
10 - evidence below
You say when you ask for the information that 14 days has elapsed and any response you have had
Does that help?
so i just fill out the form and send it of - are there any fees to pay?
http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n244-notes-eng.pdf is this the right notes?
Fee is £50 without hearing and £155 with hearing
Does that clarify?
Yes notes are correct
any more information i need or just fill it out, send it of, with a cheque and sit back and see?
Just fill it out and see if the Court lists it for a hearing, which in all honestly is likely
Can I help further with this at all?
