Making Enquiries Into Claims: Requests For Information and Documents

It will often be necessary to seek additional information or to inspect documentation when enquiring into a claim. You may issue a notice under FA08/Sch36 where you do not get all the information and/or documents your informal request asked for. See CH23000+ for guidance on information notices.
