Customer Question

Question on set aside. I have a set-aside hearing on 9 October.

Is it possible to delay this hearing and how would I go about doing so? The costs of such a delay bearing in mind claimant's costs are £1500.

Second. The reason why I want to delay is that I'm uncertain that I can get a a bundle of documents which I presented to the court and the claimant on 27 September accepted by the court. The claimant says in a witness statement "it does not respond to this new evidence as it was not provided at the time the Application was made, is late and "served" incorrectly, it says. It says further, "in any event the further evidence should not be allowed without the court's permission.
