The following Dispute Resolution practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note deals with a pilot scheme to test a procedure to enable legal representatives to file and issue County Court money claims (specified or unspecified) online (CPR PD 51S).
The pilot scheme is part of a wider HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) reform initiative, more information on which can be found on the Gov.uk website—HMCTS reform programme.
CPR PD 51S has introduced a pilot scheme for the filing and issuing of County Court Money Claims (CCMC) online at the CCMCC. The aim of the pilot is to reduce the delays that currently occur when claims are issued in the County Court, with legal representatives being able to issue a claim online and receive a sealed claim form and claim number in a matter of minutes. The pilot scheme runs from 12 September 2017 to 30 November 2022. Participation in the pilot scheme was initially by invitation only for a select number of firms, but it is now available to all professional users—see: LNB News 05/06/2020 72—Pilot scheme in PD51S extended to all professional applicants amid coronavirus (COVID-19).
CCMC cases are identified in CPR PD 7A, para 4. They were previously known as ‘designated money claims’. For further guidance on the process that applies in respect of CCMC cases
