The following Dispute Resolution guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note should be read in conjunction with Practice Note: County Court money claims—how and where to issue.
Note: for information on the pilot scheme for the filing and issuing of County Court Money Claims (CCMCs) online at the County Court Money Claims Centre (CCMCC), see Practice Note: Online Civil Money Claims and County Court Online pilot schemes—CPR PD 51R and CPR PD 51S.
CCMCs can be brought for specified or unspecified amounts of money. The concept of CCMCs (County Court claims where the only claim is for money, whether for a specified or an unspecified amount) require all such claims to be issued via the CCMCC. For a definition of a CCMC and further information on issuing them, see Practice Note: County Court money claims—how and where to issue.
Once a CCMC has been issued at the CCMCC, subject to the matters below, it remains there for all the early stage administration up until directions questionnaires have been filed with the court. At that point the claim is then transferred.
The claimant will have specified their 'Preferred County Court Hearing Centre' in their claim form, Form N1. The preferred hearing centre is the hearing centre to which the claimant would want proceedings
