Following the hearing of our application for a Group Action Order on Thursday at the High Court we are pleased to confirm that the terms by which Edwards & Co may conduct the action on your behalf have been finalised.
The terms of note are as follows:
• It has been agreed that each claimant will provide the answers (if known) to some additional questions about their ownership and transfer, if applicable, of the vehicle.
• It has been agreed that each claimant when providing the answers to the new questions, if known, and reviewing their previously submitted information, will sign an online declaration of truth.
• It has been agreed that each claimant will undertake to keep in their possession any documentary evidence of their ownership and transfer, if applicable, of the vehicle.
Please allow for a short interval whilst we have the website functions finalised to allow you to complete the above actions online. We anticipate this will take 2 weeks.
At the time of providing your further information we will also be asking you to sign up to the costs sharing agreement and contribute in the region of £100 towards the administrative costs of the action thus far. A full explanation of the terms of the Costs Sharing Agreement and confirmation of the sum required from each claimant will follow shortly.
Mr Justice Maguire has allowed a period of 3 months for any owners of affected vehicles purchased in Northern Ireland to complete the above actions and thus join the Group Action. Therefore when we contact you to confirm you may complete the above actions you will need to do so promptly.
