Pipe v Spicerhaart Estate Agents Ltd trading as Haart

Practice – Extension of time. The Queen's Bench division refused the respondent's application for an extension of time to file a respondent's notice. Among other things, it was clear that, having been granted permission to appeal, the appellant had repeatedly sought to engage with the respondent, and the respondent had repeatedly failed to do so until it had been too late. Equally, whilst there was no question of the respondent seeking to challenge the judge's findings of fact in any way, the consequences of granting the application would not be minimal.
