CHANGES TO COST BUDGETING RULES: KEY DATES AND TIMES

The previous post looked at the changes to costs budgeting coming into force on the 6th April.   Here is a list of the key dates and times. These are key dates in litigation and the sanction for failing to file a costs budget on time remains.

KEY DATES AND TIMES

  1. The new rules apply to proceedings issued on or after the 6th April 2016.

  2. When the claim is less than £50,000 (and costs budgeting applies) the costs budget must be filed with the directions questionnaires (limited to the first page of Form H)

  3. In other cases the costs budget must be filed not later than 21 days before the first case management conference. 

  4. The agreed budget discussion report must be filed no later than 7 days before the first case management conference.
