Abbey filed a defence. Michael received a letter from the court stating that he needed to agree with Abbey on an Independant Expert Witness to look at the case and he would have to pay 50% of the cost. Michael wrote back to the court and said that he was unable to reach agreement with the bank.


2 weeks ago he received a call from Abbey representatives, asking if he would like to negotiate a settlement. Michael said no.


Michael has received a letter from the court today, stating that he has to go to court on 5th December 2006 to agree with Abbey on which Expert Witness should be appointed.


We have not seen any mention of this in the press and associated web sites.


He is unsure what he should do about it and would like to know if you could offer him any advice.


I hope that you can help us. The next step is the Citizens Advice Bureau because we do not know what to do.


Kind Regards

Yes, he has completed an allocation questionnaire. In the court, the case has got as far as being given a hearing date of 17th January 2007 (is this what you mean by being allocated a track?).


This date of 17th January has now been withdrawn and presumably a final hearing date will be set once the Expert has been appointed.


Any help or insight would be appreciated.
