Magistrates Court - Civil
A chamber application is made to the court for an order in a civil proceeding.
For example, you may have asked the other party to provide more details about their pleadings but they refuse. You can make a chamber application to the court for an order that they supply those particulars.
There are different types of chamber applications including:
- originating application
- application not on notice
- application on notice.
The application is the order you want the magistrate to make and the affidavit outlines the reasons you want the magistrate to grant your application.
