Cost Budgeting and Precedent H forms
Cost budgeting is now of vital importance in all claims assigned to the multi-track (i.e. claims with a value of over £25,000 or which are complex in nature). A document called a Precedent H form must be completed and filed at court in advance of the Case Management Conference.
The rules relating to Precedent H cost budgets are very strict indeed. Failure to complete them properly or serve them on time can have drastic consequences for the party concerned. They can be complicated documents to complete.
