Three CPR provisions have been the subject of the reforms which came into force on Thursday 5 June. These are:
We provided our Practice Note setting out information on these changes exclusively to our subscribers in our May monthly email. Ensure you don't miss out on upcoming newsletters by signing up on the right - alternatively if you'd like to receive the May email please leave your details below.
We have amended content within LexisPSL DR to reflect the new provisions.
Previously parties have, in some instances, been able to agree to extend time limits set out in a rule, practice direction or court order. However, the sanction for failure to comply with the rule, practice direction or sanction still applied and a court application was required for relief from that sanction. The new provision in CPR 3.8(4) now means that parties can reach an agreement to extend time without the continued imposition of the relevant sanction so alleviating the need for the separate relief from sanctions application. For information on CPR 3.8(4) agreements, which are already being referred to as 'buffer agreements' by some.*
