This Practice Note explains how to apply for an information hearing and how to serve the relevant order. It also addresses when orders can be served out of the jurisdiction.
The procedure is set out in CPR 71.
For guidance on when you might seek an information hearing and what to expect at the hearing, see Practice Note: Information hearing—introduction and the hearing.
A creditor can apply for an Information Hearing as soon as judgment is made, even if costs remain to be assessed.
The application may be made without notice and must be issued in the court or County Court hearing centre which made the judgment or order of which enforcement is sought. Exceptions to this are where:
the proceedings have since transferred to another court or hearing centre, in which case it must be issued there
the application relates to enforcing a County Court money claim (CCMC) (previously known as a 'designated money claim' or 'DMC'). In this case, the application for an information hearing should be made in accordance with CPR PD 70A, s 2.
