    Hi everyone! So I have progression on my case...
    I have received a "Notice of allocation to the Small Claims Track"... it says the claimaint needs to pay a fee and if it isnt paid then the claim will be struck out... I'm assuming thats normal and that they will pay.

    So just to check this all sounds usual and the next step is to send my witness statement and evidence within 14 days before the court date right? :grin:

    A link to the front covering letter of the notice can be found here: https://ibb.co/6R2pDNW

    All very standard. You file and serve according to the instructions (sometimes on the back of the letter). Don't assume it is 14 days and, particularly as there are only about 21 days to go, get cracking on the WS and evidence.

    Perfect! Thank you. Just to confirm, this one does still say 14 days.
    Will keep this updated! Court date is in March. Wish me luck!

    OK, if only I could count - missed out a whole month there! Good luck. Don't forget to post your WS and evidence here for critique if you want.

    In the meantime, you may have missed a trick due to your absence, hope I am wrong.

    You've not been here since August, so unless you've been keeping up with the forum (I hope you have) you maybe missed what happened at Southampton court, that you can use against the falsely added £60 in your own case (read the thread by CEC16) and you may have also missed that we always now tell people to file & serve their costs schedule in advance, too.

    Thank you so much for the replies, and not to worry about the mistake with time frame Le_Kirk, it's January, no one knows where they are for the first few weeks of the year! Haha.

    Thanks Coupon-mad for the info, I hadnt seen the Southampton case, I will look it up. Also will be aware to make a note of my costs in advance...

    I will do some digging / updating myself on threads, write a witness statement and definitely post here for critique.

    Thanks again!!

    OK, show us your WS, costs schedule and supplementary WS about the added costs.
