Hello,

Has your claim been defended and how much was it for?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi yes there was a hearing on the 27th August the defendant had until 10th September to reply. I have now received forms from the court saying that they will set a court date.

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
Okay.

You should attend the hearing if possible or appoint a solicitor to assist you with it unless you have a good reason not to attend the hearing in which case you should send a letter to the country court explaining why you cannot attend and that you are happy for the case to proceed without you attending.
