Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Do you need to know which court forms to use please?
Yes please if this is how I appeal the Addendum.
Alex Watts : Yes. You need to apply to the court.
Alex Watts : You complete form n208
Alex Watts : http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n208-eng.pdf
Alex Watts : The court issues the claim and a copy is sent to the other side.
Alex Watts : The matter is set down for a hearing and a judge will either make a determination it give directions for a final hearing.
Alex Watts : Then if there is a final hearing the judge makes up his mind.
Alex Watts : This is how you appeal.
Alex Watts : Can I claiify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks for this - if I fill in the claim and then change my mind and settle, what would be the consequences?
Alex Watts : If the claim is issued you would be responsible for the other sides costs to date.
Alex Watts : Does that clarify the position?
Alex Watts : Can I help with anything else today?
I have more questions relating to this. Is the appeal time 14 days from the issue of the Addendum or the receipt of it?
Alex Watts : Yes 14 days
Alex Watts : (17)Either of the parties to the dispute may, within the period of fourteen days beginning with the day on which an award made under this section is served on him, appeal to the county court against the award and the county court may—
Alex Watts : (a)rescind the award or modify it in such manner as the court thinks fit; and
Alex Watts : (b)make such order as to costs as the court thinks fit.
Alex Watts : Does that answer your question today, or do you need more help?
