SCOTLAND - Response from the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (29 April 2020)
SCOTLAND - Response from the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (29 April 2020)

Further to the response attached below, the SCTS have advised the following - 

 

"The matters outlined as urgent administrative matters in your letter will be processed if they

  • fall within the business considered urgent and/or necessary or
  • where the court is satisfied there is good reason for the proceedings to be restarted, they can be progressed remotely and no evidence requires to be led. 

 This is as set out in the table of civil priorities on our website

 http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/docs/default-source/default-document-library/civil-business---coronavirus---updated.pdf?sfvrsn=2

 As far as personal insolvency matters are concerned they will only be progressed where the court considers that the application is urgent and/or necessary.

 As I advised this is the first step towards the resumption of civil business in the sheriff courts and we will add additional categories of civil business and procedures as and when Government restrictions are eased."
