“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?
