Actions set down for hearing
Acceptance of sum paid into court in satisfaction of a claim
Practitioners are advised that a court order for payment out is not required where a notice of acceptance of money lodged in court is served pursuant to Order 22 rule 4, in an action which has been set down for hearing (but subject to the provisions of Order 22, rule 10 in respect of persons not sui juris). Prior to making application to the accountant, however, practitioners must inform the Chief Registrar in writing that the action has been settled and may be taken out of the relevant list for trial, quoting both record number and list number. A copy of such written notification should be lodged with the accountant when making an application for payment out.
