Getting mixed up with the terminology and timing given in the CPR direction 7.
A claim form can be issued and then not served for 4 months, but a claim form served has to have its particulars of claim served in 14 days. Can somebody explain the 4 month disparity, and the difference when a form is issued but not served. Also note if the claim form is issued, the defendant can ask for it to be served by 14 days, this I'm assuming is 14 days after the 4 months is over.
I'm confused and I'm sitting here with 2 litigation manuals, CPR rules and a guide book for Litigants in Person.
