3. Procedures subsequent to an admission
For liquidated claim
If the plaintiff accepts the defendant’s admission and payment proposal, he can file and serve a Form 16A to request for judgment from the Court. If the plaintiff does not accept the payment proposal, he shall file and serve the Form 16A stating the grounds of rejection and the Court will make a determination on paper. In the situation that the defendant makes partial admission on the amount claimed and the plaintiff does not accept the defendant’s amount admitted, he will file and serve a Form 16B to reject it, and in such circumstances the case may be proceeded as if the defendant contests the proceedings.
For unliquidated claim
If the defendant has admitted liability to pay the whole of plaintiff’s claim but has not made any payment proposal, the plaintiff shall the file and serve the Form 16D, and the Court will then enter judgment for an amount to be decided by the Court with costs.
If the defendant has admitted liability to pay, and offered an amount and/or made payment proposal, the plaintiff shall file and serve the Form 16E, either accepting the proposal (in which the Court will then enter judgment on the terms proposed by the defendant), or rejecting the offer / proposal (in which the Court will give further directions).
