By this action under CPR Part 8, the Claimant (‘SDFC’) seeks declaratory relief against the Defendant (‘The Official Receiver’ or ‘TOR’ for short) relating to the time limitation provision governing complaints referred pursuant to the Financial Ombudsman Service (‘FOS’). The complaints concern payment protection insurance (‘ppi’ for short) which was allegedly mis-sold to consumers who since became bankrupt and whose respective estates duly vested in TOR by operation of law. TOR notified a bulk complaint during mid-2019.
