24 Duration and renewal of claim
(1) A claim remains in force for 1 year starting on the day it is filed.
If the claim has not been served on a defendant and the registrar is satisfied
that reasonable efforts have been made to serve the defendant or that there is
another good reason to renew the claim, the registrar may renew the claim for
further periods, of not more than 1 year at a time, starting on the day after
the claim would otherwise end.
(3) The claim may be renewed whether or not it
is in force.
(4) However, the court’s leave must be obtained before a claim
may be renewed for a period any part of which falls on or after the fifth
anniversary of the day on which the claim was originally filed.
(5) Before a
claim renewed under this rule is served, it must be stamped with the court’s
seal by the appropriate officer of the court and show the period for which the
claim is renewed.
(6) Despite subrule (1) , for any time limit (including a
limitation period), a claim that is renewed is taken to have started on the
day the claim was originally filed.
