These Rules amend Form 19 of the County Court Rules (Northern Ireland) 1981 (S.R. 1981 No. 225) to clarify that, where it exceeds £15,000, the value of the estate must be specified on the Form. The amendment corrects provision made in Rule 19 of the County Court (Amendment) Rules (Northern Ireland) 2013 which indicated the requirement applied to estates valued over £30,000.
