Hi is anyone else going through the small claims court process at present with barcalys and particually getting dealt with by Southport County Court (sefton). Seem to be getting to a stcky end. I'm fuming as well! I filed my claim with Southport court and barclays filed a defence. As requested by the court I had to send my full particulars again to themselves and barclays. I had less then a week to do this as it was around the christmas period. Barclays had up until the 18th January to file the defence, I hadn't heard anything so i rung up the courts and they said that they hadn't filed a defence. I was waiting and waiting....rung up the courts again last week and they said that they had sent a defence on the 6th FEB 3 WEEKS LATE and they have been allowed to file it by the courts. So a couple a questions if anyone knows


1. How can they file it so late and get it away with it


2. Could I use this against them in the case?


3. I haven't had any literature since I had to file my full particulars/since barclays deadline, should i be worried?


4. Why am i getting less time them then to file my claim compared to their defence?

1. The courts can extend deadlines if they wish.


2. Not really (if it's a small claim).


3. Give the court a call and check nothing's been sent out and gone astray.


4. Because unfortunately life is sometimes just like that.

If in doubt read the



If still in doubt - ask!
