Does a hearing bundle need to be filed for a multi-track costs case management conference? What documents need to be filed for a multi-track costs case management conference?

This Q&A refers to a claim issued under CPR Part 7 in which a notice of provisional allocation to the multi-track has been issued.

In this Q&A we have limited our research to the documents which must be filed in relation to costs budgets and we have addressed the question of when these documents must be filed under the rules and provides examples of case management directions which are commonly (but not always) encountered as a supplement to the rules.

In advance of a costs and case management conference (CCMC) there are two costs management-based documents which must be filed and exchanged.

The first is the precedent H costs budget, and the second is the precedent R budget discussion report.

The court has a general discretion to tinker with the timetables. The following is, therefore, always subject to what is said in the notice of provisional allocation (or any other order made in advance of the CCMC).
