Allocation and listing fees

A fee is payable by the claimant when the allocation questionnaire15 and listing questionnaire16 are filed unless the claimant successfully applies for an exemption from or remission of payment of the fee.17 However, even in those cases where the court has dispensed with the need for an allocation or listing questionnaire, or one is not required under the rules, the fee will still be payable. In those circumstances, the fee will be payable either within 14 days of the date the notice of allocation to track has been sent to the parties by the court, or where there is automatic allocation or no allocation to a track, within 28 days of the filing of the defence, or if there is more than one defendant, the last defence, or within 28 days of expiry of the time for filing all defences if sooner.18
