(1) An application for a third party debt order will initially be dealt with by the Court without a hearing.
(2) The Court may make an interim third party debt order —
(a) fixing a hearing to consider whether to make a final third party debt order; and
(b) specifying the amount of money which the third party must retain to be calculated in accordance with the relevant practice direction and directing that until that hearing the third party must not make any payment which reduces the amount he owes to the judgment debtor to less than the amount specified in the order.
(3) An interim third party debt order becomes binding on a third party when it is served on him.
