Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
I am not quite with you - you want specific disclosure, is that right?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
oh sorry i dont think i was very clear with my question
i am the claimant
i need to fill in n181 form and write an order of direction this below is what i need to know how to forward in legal term i believe i have all the necessary documents :You must attempt to agree proposed directions with all other parties. Whether agreed or not a
draft of the order for directions which you seek must accompany this form.???AND according to CPR16.5 the defendant did not defend claim in proper ways how do i respond to this in legal terms?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
You just need to say 'I wish to ask for standard fast track directions'.
Also you should also ask the Court that 'The Defendant do file and serve a proper pleaded defence in accordance with CPR 16.5 otherwise the defence shall be struck out'.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

do i ask the court in my puposed directions? or in the form?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes. You ask this in your proposed Directions or in the Additional Information box.
Does that help?

do the defence also file their proposed directions?
if yes does the judge decide which direction to use?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes the Defendant does. The Judge will look at both and if they can't be agreed, may have a Directions hearing.
Does that help?

in regard to my previous question;
'You must attempt to agree proposed directions with all other parties. Whether agreed or not a
draft of the order for directions which you seek must accompany this form'
do i attempt this with defendants in my proposed directions or by phone?i have an allocations notice that states this;
TAKE NOTICE THAT
1. This is now a defended claim.
2. It appears that this case is suitable for allocation to the fast track.
If you believe that this track is not the appropriate track for the claim, you must complete box D2 on the Directions
Questionnaire (Form N181) and explain why.
3. You must by
a) complete the Directions Questionnaire (Form N181), file it with the court office and serve copies on
all other parties
and b) attempt to agree directions with all other parties
and c) file proposed directions (whether or not agreed) with the Directions Questionnaire.
4. By the same date, the allocation fee of £ is due. this is payable by the claimant, unless proceeding
on a counterclaim only.
Following further notice, if the allocation fee is not paid by the date due the claim/counterclaim will be
automatically struck outthe letter states i have until 7th dec to do this but i read u only have 14 days to defend a claim
how long do i have
to file directions to defendants?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes try and agree directions if you can, if not the court will order directions. You both have to file n181 at the same time. You only get n181 if the claim is defended, clearly it is and will now be allocated. There is no 14 day deadline on allocation
Does that help?
