No I didn't. I misunderstood the letter. I quote from the letter "The hearing of the claim will take place at .............A hearing fee of £25 is payable by 7 July 2014 by the claimant unless you make an application for a fee concession. Failure to pay the fee will result in the hearing being removed from the list.". As the court believed that that the case was suitable for mediation, I didn't pay the fee as I was waiting to be sent a mediation appointment. I thought the hearing would therefore not go ahead.
You can apply to set it aside.
You need to complete form n244 and there is a Court fee of £155
The Court will list the matter for a hearing and you need to provide evidence to say why it should be set aside
You can therefore put your case as to WHY it should be set aside.
This will not be the trial - just an application to set aside
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
How long do I have to file the claim?
There will be an issue of promptness - the longer you leave it, the more it will harm your application to set aside
Does that help?
