What form do I complete to get permission to amend my defence

This answer was rated:

what form do I complete to get permission to amend my defence from the court please?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
its form N244:
There is a Court fee of £50 as well payable to HMCTS
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

n244 is not an amendment to defence form - it is an application notice in the court of appeal - the link you provide goes to a particulars of claim form? Please explain?

It is N244, the link I gave you had the wrong form number:
Apologies for confusion!
Does that help?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thank you appreciate it - where it says what order you are asking to make and why - I just say to give permission to change my defence?

Yes that is correct then in Box 10 on page 2 you need to say why you want to amend it.
Does that help?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

perfect - the last thing - do I send this form to the claimant as well as the court or can I wait for the outcome before I send the form to the claimant?

You can wait the outcome unless the Claimant consents which I assume they dont!
