Application to file an extension of time to file Defence. I am the Claimant. Defendants solicitor has filed an application for extension of time by 4 weeks to be allowed to file a defence. A hearing is planned in 3 weeks. By the date of the hearing they would have had 4+4 weeks to dil their defence so clearly this hearing is no longer required. Can I make an application to the court to indicate ethat this hearing is not required and I agree to the extension. Can any order for costs be requested to be set aside as the Defendants owe me money for an incomplete building project
Hello and thanks for requesting me
You just need to write to the Court and the other side.
You don't need to make a formal application
Write to the other side and say you consent, they should draw up a consent order to be sent to the Court and sealed which should vacate the hearing
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No. You just need to write a letter - no specific form
Does that help?
Excellent Thank you for your help again.
