Review Your SQE 1 Practice Records

Examination Timing: 00H00M53S

Thomas, a defendant, is served with a claim form and particulars of claim by a claimant named Lucy. Thomas admits some of the allegations and denies others. However, Lucy has also made several allegations against Thomas that are outside the scope of his knowledge. Which of the following best represents how Thomas should proceed?

You have chosen the correct answer

Allegations outside Thomas's knowledge should be dealt with as non-admissions, requiring Lucy to provide strict proof. Although the burden of proof lies with Lucy, Thomas should not blanket deny everything as it implies he has knowledge of all facts (making Options A and C incorrect), nor should he ignore any allegations made (making Option B incorrect). Option E is incorrect because it suggests that Thomas denies all allegations, which does not align with him admitting some and denying others. 

Key Point: Defendants should use non-admissions for allegations outside their knowledge, requiring claimants to provide proof, and properly address each allegation based on their knowledge.
