The following Dispute Resolution guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note considers what can happen at a CPR 85 hearing at which a debtor’s claim to exempt goods or a third party’s claim to controlled or executed goods, all brought under CPR 85 (replacing the interpleader regime under RSC Ord 17 and CCR Ord 33), are heard. It considers the directions that may be made at such hearing, trial of preliminary issue and costs and the particular sanction for non-appearance at a CPR 85 hearing.
For guidance on when a debtor can challenge executed or controlled goods on the basis that such goods are exempt, see Practice Note: Controlled and executed goods—debtor claiming goods are 'exempt goods'.
For guidance on when a third party can challenge executed or controlled goods on the basis that they own the goods which have been controlled or executed against, see Practice Note: Third party claims in respect of controlled or executed goods.
