    Civil Procedure Rules!

    So in response to some gentle hassling by fellow LLZ member Surrey, I've finally had a go at looking through the Civil Procedure Rules in order to prepare for my forthcoming Section 8 Court hearing.

    Oh...

    ..............................................GOD!

    There must be hundreds of pages of turgid legalese here, the vast majority of which must be totally irrelevant (surely? please!?) for a straightforward hearing like mine. I've located the bit about preparing witness statements: http://www.dca.gov.uk/civil/procrule.../pd_part32.pdf
    which seems important and not too bad to get my head round; which other Practice Directions would people say are must-reads?

    Isn't there a Dummy's Guide to all this woffle available somewhere?!?

    Yup... he sits on the bench in front of you and is the Judge!!!

    If the Lawpack Small Claims Kit is of a similar standard to their other products it may be worth £14.99 to alleviate your worries.

    The County Court booklets and notice guidance notes also contain much useful information

    Any advice or suggestions given in my posts are intended for guidance only and not a substitute for completing full searches on this forum, having regard to the advice of others, or seeking appropriate professional opinion.
    Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.

      When I did my section 8 repossession I found the following useful - hope they help you. I remember being really worried before the hearing (not afraid of standing up in court but bothered in case I had done something wrong on the paperwork!) All went well however - hearing is relatively informal.
