  • Drafting note for claim form in right of light proceedings

Introduction

A claim about rights of light will often be commenced under CPR 7 by using Claim form (N1)
, although in some cases the CPR Part 8 procedure may be appropriate (see Practice Note: CPR Part 8 claims (alternative procedure for claims)). These drafting notes are for use with Form N1 only.

For general guidance, see Practice Note: Claim form—the contents.

Court details

Insert the name of the court where the proceedings are to be issued.

The claim can be issued either in the County Court or in the High Court if the value of the claim permits, see Practice Note: Where to start the claim. If issuing in the County Court, you can issue the claim in any County Court hearing centre, however, be aware that if the claim is issued in a County Court hearing centre other than that serving the address for where the property is located, then it may be that the claim will (once issued) be sent on to the relevant court and, therefore, this extra process may give rise to delay. See CPR PD 2C, para 4 and Practice Note: Where to issue County Court claims and applications—CPR PD 2C.

The court will insert the claim number on issuing the claim.
