the hearing is a week today and I have submitted a statement in response
Ok - that is fine then.
1. will the judge take a dim view of them lying about their registered address? - very dim, especially if you have evidence.
2. will the judge take a dim view of them contacting the second company and intimidating them? - Yes indeed the Judge will.
Lastly, do I need to file any type of OFFICIAL form to oppose the set aside? - no you just file a witness statement exhibiting any evidence that you have.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
With reference to evidence for the Claimant lying about registered address, the evidence is the date on their application for set aside. Application *said* to have been filed on 10th Dec, application actually received by the court on 30th Dec (and sent back for the inclusion of further copies, re-filed on 7th Jan). Change of reg address on 16th Dec - old address contained in Witness Statement of their Application to set aside. Is this evidence enough of *lying*?
Final thing - when does the court deem a document to have been sent to them? So if a document arrives on 10th, when does the court deem that document to have been posted to them?
