Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much is the debt please?
OK - you need to get an interim charging order first. You apply using form N379
You also need to get a copy of the Land Registry title at:
Send this to Court and the Court will give you an interim order. Once you have this you send it to the Land Registry.
The Court will then set a date to make it final which you need to attend.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
It will give you a County Court reference and Court. Once you have that you can call the Court and ask for a copy of the application.
Once you have the application you can see WHO applied for it.
Does that clarify?
http://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/handbook/code/content.page - Chapter 1
This includes providing clients with the information they need to make informed decisions about the services they need, how these will be delivered and how much they will cost. This will enable you and your client to understand each other's expectations and responsibilities. This chapter is also about ensuring that if clients are not happy with the service they have received they know how to make a complaint and that all complaints are dealt with promptly and fairly.
They can only communicate that in a letter. Does that clarify?
There is no other way that the Solicitor can comply with the above requirements.
If they do not they can not provide evidence and would be in breach
The rules. How Else can they prove compliance?
is there a specific rule - no
But otherwise they can not satisfy the SRA as to the code section your client and com uniting the case to them.
Just that the code states they must communicate with the client. This should be done by letter so there is evidence of this. If there is no evidence There is a breach.
Or just go to the legal ombudsman who can investigate.
No, as I have said several times there is no specific rule that says a letter must be issued.
But what it does say is what the SRA expects in terms of client care. Informing about case, costs, needs etc.
That can only realistically be done with evidence on the form of a letter
