Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know what type of hearing it is?
Possession for sale of property in bankruptcy estate
OK, when did you realise you couldnt attend?
I got the notice within the past week or so and when I checked my diary I realised that I was going to be out of country on the 10th of December on business
Ok, then you need to apply on form N244 asap
You need to pay a fee of £45 and ask that the Court adjourn it.
You need to send when you received the notice, when you booked to go out the country and include evidence of that
If you do this now then the court is more likely to grant an adjournment
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Is there a form I need to complete and if yes, where/how do I submit it, i.e. in person or by post?
Yes Form n244 - did you not see the link above?
You can post it to the Court with a cheque to the Court where the matter is listed
Does that help?
yes, thank you
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Sorry, the notes to n244 say that the form is for suspending eviction. I am not at this stage yet, all I want to do at present is to adjourn the hearing for possession. Do I still need to submit n244?
Yes N244 is a form for a general application. In this case you are applying for an adjournment
So yes you need to submit form N244
Great, thank you for your help.
can i clarify anything else for you?
