NEW PRACTICE DIRECTION: RIGHT TO BUY CLAIMS

Mediatelegal

The Master of the Rolls has issued a Practice Direction dealing specifically with “right to buy” claims. That is negligence actions against solicitors in relation to mortgage broking. Those claims are now allocated to a specific Master. Any existing claims in the High Court or County Court should be transferred to the Chancery Division.  Any new claims must be issued in the central division of the Chancery Division.

The Practice Direction is available at http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/Practice%20Directions/Chancery/right-to-buy-litigation-practice-direction.pdf
