What edition of Currie are you using?
In my opinion you have used the correct style. Unless the court can say why they don't like it. I would resubmit and ask them to call you to discuss it as I can't see what's wrong with it.
Yes you do need your address on it. You would have thought that they would have told you that when they returned it because there's nothing wrong with your drafting.
"Design" means name and address.
Many thanks. Please leave a positive rating so that I am creditd for my time.
From the information you gave me there's nothing wrong with the Petition. The commissary clerks at Edinburgh have a reputation for being unhelpful. Call them on Monday. Ask them what the problem is. If they don't cooperate tell them you will send the Petition back to them with a request that you will seek a hearing before the sheriff AND you will lodge a formal complaint to the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service. That normally works! The only thing that appears to be missing from your draft above is that you should have IN RESPECT WHEREOF and your signature, name and address under both the crave and the plea in law. I presume you have that in your hard copy. You might want to scan and email the signed version that's been bounced and I'll have a look. I am embarrassed that the court service is giving you no help whatsoever here.
A Petition is the same as an Initial Writ in this case and the sheriff c,Eik is at it. They can't on the one hand reject your application and on the other not tell you why. That's nothing to do with legal advice. That's just downright nonsense on their part. Tell them want an explanation as to why your application is being rejected or you will lodge a formal complaint. There is nothing wrong with your application.
There is no requirement to do this. You have put everything in that Currie requires.
