It means that the writ can continue against Whites Motors Limited but not against anyone else.It is designed to prevent confusion so that the writ is only pursued against the intended party.
Do you know whether they are chasing Whites Motors or Whites Motors Limited and do you know anything about the claim?
the first i knew about this was when a high court sheriff arrived at my premises with a writ against whites motors limited which we knew nothing about as we are whites motors.The claim is for a disputed solicitors bill which we knew about but we knew nothing of the court action.
So they have still got it wrong.
However they will eventually get it right so if you know that this relates to this invoice then you should apply to get judgment set aside on the basis that you did not receive the claim form and had no opportunity to defend the claim.If you feel that they are due some money then you can make an offer to settle and say that if it is not accepted then you will apply to set aside the judgment.
If there are any further points please reply.
