Readers of the blog may remember that we recently covered the problems that arose for many when the LAA revised the CIVAAP 1 to match the regulation, so that you need to tick ‘yes’ a case is unsuitable for a CFA.
Unsurprisingly, this came up at the LAPG conference during the ‘ask the LAA panel’ session. Shaun McNally, the LAA’s Director of Case Management, made a bold offer – if a case is plainly unsuitable for a CFA (e.g. a possession claim or a JR), the form has been completed correctly and you STILL get a delay because the LAA makes further enquiries, he agreed to look into the matter personally.
