N120 Particulars of Claim Trespass Claims

When a Claimant makes a claim, he will need to provide the court and the Defendant with a detailed description of the facts on which the claim is based. This includes the activity which is complained of, how the Claimant believes that this activity is unlawful, details of the relationship between the Defendant and the Claimant and an estimate of the loss which the Claimant has suffered. The document in which these details are provided is called the “Particulars of Claim”.

If a Claimant fails to establish his case in the Particulars of Claim, the Defendant is entitled to ask the court to throw out the case by making an application to “strike out” the particulars. This form is designed for use in cases where a property is mortgaged to the Claimant and he is taking action to obtain possession of the property. It prompts the Claimant to provide specific details which are necessary to establish his claim.
