I have recently received from the County Court a 'Notice of Allocation Hearing' in regards to my claim against the Abbey National for refund of Bank Charges. The Notice informs me that a telephone hearing has been scheduled in accordance with Civil Procedure Rule PD23.

The notice states that it is the Applicant Solicitor's responsibility to arrange the Telephone Conference with a Conference Provider, (or 1st named party on opposing side who is represented), and to contact the court to ascertain the name of the judge that will be hearing this matter, at least two days before the hearing. Once you have been given the name of the judge you should give this to your conference provider along with the conference telephone number.


What does all this mean? I have no Solicitor to represent me and does the word 'Applicant' actually refer to me or the defendant Abbey National? Is it my responsibilty to contact them to arrange this 'conference' or is it their responsibility to organise this?


I am very confused as the document also talks about in accordance with PD23 it is the responsibilty of the legal representative responsible for arranging the telephone conference to file and serve a case summary and draft order, if the hearing relates to Multi or Fast Track and Disposal Directions, no later tha 4:00pm on the last working day before the hearing. Again what does this mean?


Any help/information regarding this procedure would be gratefully received.

Since you have no solicitor, it is Abbeys responsibility to arrange this.


Write to them refering to the order and ask them to let you know the arrangements they are making. Copy to the court.[Many thanks for your quick response i will compose a letter to Abbey National ASAP requesting information on the arrangements they are making]
