Listing Questionnaire fee

By on Aug 17, 2015 | 2 comments

The Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment No.2) Order 2013 read:

“Fees 2.1 and 2.2 [being the fees payable when filing a Directions Questionnaire and Listing Questionnaire] are payable once only in the same proceedings.”

The Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2014 has dropped the fee for filing a Directions Questionnaire. However, I can no longer see a note stating the Listing Questionnaire fee is payable only once. This issue sometime arises where there has been a split trial and more than one Listing Questionnaire was filed. In the past, if a claimant wrongly paid the Listing Questionnaire fee twice, there was no doubt the defendant would not be liable for the second fee.

Is the omission of a similar note in the 2014 Order an oversight?

  1. Timothy P, the “listing fee” is no more (hence £0), but the Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2014 continues to provide a fee for when the pre-trial checklist is filed (previously, and in the document you link to) referred to as a “hearing fee”, which is potentially refundable depending on when the matter settles. Previously it was clear that this was payable only once.
