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.
