I have asked disclosure of land deed ownership of a project

This answer was rated:

I have asked for early disclosure of land deed ownership of a project that I lent money to build a villa. The defendants are saying that they don't have the documents and want to mediate before the CMC and standard disclosure. Will the master make the defendant produce the deeds? Also the solicitor marked the communication without prejudice half through the communication, and I said that I don't agree to this as this is a subject that I want to bring up at the cmc, Will I be allowed to?.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Just to be clear, they are saying they dont have it and its not within their control?

Will the court accept this answer as they got me to sign a contract with another company on their word that the bank had requested it and land had moved ownership

Do you think they do have it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
because the bank instructed them to move the asset leaving me with a contract with an empty shell company

Ok - then you can either make an application to Court for specific disclosure, or you can ask at the CMC for disclosure of it.

So yes you can ask for it.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The defendants solicitor put the reply for the request stating not within their control as without prejudice.
I said that I didn't agree to the communication being this status as I wanted to show the judge his reply. Can I still show the judge this email at the CMC?

Yes, without prejudice is only for offers. So yes you can.

Can I clarify anything else? Alex

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what does offers mean?

An offer in terms of settlement. That only applies to without prejudice communications.

Does that clarify? Alex
