Urgent business in the Chancery division

Urgent business in the Chancery division

Fortnightly ‘urgent applications’ list for urgent Chancery masters’ business have been introduced. An information note published on 7 September 2015 advising of the new regime also sets out various requirements to be observed on this list. These include:

• the need to certify the application as being one that needs to be dealt with on an expedited basis

• limiting the maximum overall time for the court to deal with the urgent application

• sanctions the chancery master can apply in the event they consider the matter did not need to be dealt with on an expedited basis and/or if any of the requirements for the urgent list have not been met, etc.

Further information and practical insight into the 'urgent applications' list is available to LexisPSL subscribers here, or access after taking a free trial here.
