Hello, my name is Jim and I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you this evening.
The documentation would be anything relevant to the claim - the civil claim is decided based on evidence, which needs documents in support and a witness statement from the claimant (to put their comments on paper to support the claim). The nature of the claim will depend on the type of documents. Generally you should supply documents for the last 6 years (if possible) due to the limitation period of 6 years, but the key is really to ensure the court has the "relevant" documentation.
I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (the top right of your screen & then click “submit”), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and I will be credited for helping you today.
You can send separate claims, yes. The proof will be required in addition to the sum with an explanation - as the burden of proving their claim lies with a claimant in your case
Once you issue a claim and the court asks you for disclosure, yes - but only at that stage. You can issue a claim and you would not have to attach all of your evidence at that stage - there will be a date given to you for standard disclosure, which means you send your evidence in support to the other side (the defendant) in due course.
Yes, I was referring to a situation if you wanted to launch a separate action. But if it is for JR proceedings then yes it can be dealt with at the same hearing.
Yes, you can do so - legal costs are recoverable as is compensation.
