The value of the claim is £88,047.07
Are you Claimant or Defendant?
Hi Alex, I am the Claimant.
Ok - then a fee is generally payable unless you qualify for fee remission.
You dont need to worry about directions if you are in person. The court will list the matter for a directions hearing and timetable the matter for Court.
If the matter has been transferred already you should file it at Kingston County Court
Does that help?
Hi Alex, while I was waiting for your reply I understood that Directions Questionnaire has changed slightly in 2014 and the new version does not contain provisions for allocation fees (I think that the cost of the allocation process has now been included in the issue fees and the cost of the listing process in the hearing fees). When it comes to proposed directions, I worry about not submitting anything as it clearly says in Directions Questionnaire "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".
Yes the AQ document required a fee of £45, but the DQ documents do not.
If you are in person its hard to agree directions because you do not know whether they are adverse to you
Fantastic, I am on a right track : )
So you advise not to submit a draft at all?
I would not because you dont know what you are asking for
Thank you Alex. You were most helpful.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Just one more think - if the Defendant and Part 20 Defendant would contact me in order to agree with their proposed directions what would you recommend for me to do?
If its multi track and you are in person they should do. But if they are not represented they probably wont
