Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did the Court give permission for an expert?
I assume this was a small claim please?
Ok - then you can appeal, but you need permission. You need to complete form N164.
You need to show why:
1) The Judge was wrong in law, or
2) The Judge was wrong in procedure, or
3) The decision made was unreasonable.
But you complete this form, send it back to the Court and you can be given permission to appeal.
If permission on paper is refused, then you can ask for a hearing and oral permission. So you get 2 bites of the cherry
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
There is an appeal cost. Its £120.
Its not a new hearing, just to decide why the Judge got it wrong. That will be the focus of the hearing
Does that clarify?
You need to apply for permission within 21 days of the decision.
Its up to you whether you want to have a telephone call. I am happy to do this if you wish
Sure. You may just need to come back and remind me, in case I am in Court
Can you remind me at 12pm when you are free. Thanks!
Ok - give me ten mins
