Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
Is this where I type any sub questions
The courts will not like it if you are trying to bring a large claim disguised as a large number of small claims. I think you are mistakenly using the small claims procedure when you should be in the County Court proper. The total claim appears to be quite large ( 39 x £1677). You are alleging either negligence or misconduct by a professional. That is a type of case that is often funded by a no win no fee agreement. I would suggest you get legal advice quickly. If you have actually issued proceedings then you are at risk that their solicitors will manouvre you into a bad position and possibly allege an abuse of process and get you claim stayed.

Yes you typed in the right place.
I mistakenly believed that the process I was going through was the county court process
How do I go direct to the county court to put the case
It is but you are in the small claims court I think. Your claim is worth well in excess of the small claims limit (it should not be viewed as a series of separate small claims but as one course of negligent/bad faith action).
Must I have a solicitor to bring a case in county court
It is not easy to bring a case of this nature as a lay person and as I say no win no fee is often available for this type of case. Most firms will do a one off free appointment to see if a case is worth taking on as a no win no fee case. When did the acts you complain of take place? Are there any limitation issues?
I was only made aware by the The Insolvancy service Itself that A Bank or other Secured Creditor CANNOT be bound to the CVA unless they Specifically agree to be bound to the CVA
There are therefore no Limitation Issues.
I followed the procedures for bringing a County Court on the Justice website.
OK. I need to go away from this site for a while but will answer later.
Thanks for your advice so far.
You don't have to have a solicitor but you have a much better chance of success if you do. Your idea to issue lots of small claims - with the 1ss as a sort of test case is very clever but not one that a court is likely allow you to do. You should get professional help with this before you are tricked by the other side.
My idea is that if I get the first claim in my favour then I can basically bring a Claim for 4 Months Just under £10000 claim.The next claim would be for £34 months which will be about £80,000.
I think there is a real risk that if you did this then the other side would argue that you were misusing the courts procedures and would seek to stay you claim r have it moved out of the small claims track. I also thing the court will be likely to agree with them. If this happens there will be costs implications for you.
