Does anyone have an idea what commencing action will cost? I've seen wildly varying figures for use of the N208 form from £175 to £000's

 

If there is non-protection by May 6th 2012 and no info provided, then isn't it an open and shut case - never that simple I know?!

 

Is a defendant given the right to counterclaim, given that they either have or have not followed the legal obligation?

 

Thanks in advance.

suing for non-protection is through the County court and best to contact them regarding costs and liability etc. could be quite a bit up front.

Up to to judge as to amount of compensation they award, early days yet to see how its going.

I am currently having an online 'dispute' with a student lawyer over these costs - you may want to read it to see who you believe.

CPR 8.1(2) says:

 

 

(2) A claimant may use the Part 8 procedure where –

(a) he seeks the court’s decision on a question which is unlikely to involve a substantial dispute of fact; or

 

(b) paragraph (6) applies.

 

 

(3) The court may at any stage order the claim to continue as if the claimant had not used the Part 8 procedure and, if it does so, the court may give any directions it considers appropriate.

Now I assumed Part 8 was for extremely simple cases (as 2(a)) but if a case turned out not to be simple (eg. that it required a hearing) a judge would simply allocate to an appropriate track (as 3)) which could be the small claims track.

 

Of course, my assumption is based on logic, whereas this is law :)

 

It seems from this forum that a number of people have made relatively straightforward claims under the rules without apparent risk of costs. What impression do others have?

Whilst I agree with you Steve_m, the CPR is explicit that section 214 claims must be part 8. And part 8 is Multi-track (substitute the word 'expensive').

No, I was referring to 2 differing OPs, highlighted by CarpetCleaners.

AFAIK my only screen name for this forum is mariner51.
