Looking for some advice please on whether this is allowed before I respond



if a claim has been issued and a hearing date set,

at the stage at which witness statements are sent



can the creditor rightly and legitimately double the value of the claim within their statement

and will the court allow this/take this into account when hearing the case?



Cannot tell that any formal application has been made just the request within the statement...

They would formally have to amend their claim and this would need an application to the court.


They would then have to file and serve the amended particulars of claim and you would then have further time to submit an amended defence.


You should raise the matter with the court and object.


However, despite all of this, if it is merely that they have raised the value of the claim rather than introduced new causes of action or new facts, then the increased value may eventually just be a formality. However, they must observe the rules regarding amendments
