Hi, what was the date judgement was entered into?
did you receive any notification of the proceedings?
It seems from the information you have provided that judgement may have been entered in default.
I would suggest that you apply to court to have the judgement set aside based on the grounds that you did not receive any documents.
If the court sets it aside, you will have an opportunity to defend the claim.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Yes I do think you can claim on both counts. However, the first thing you would need to do is apply to have the judgement set aside.
The court should then allow you to file a defence and counterclaim.
If they do not set it aside then the judgement stands and you will have to pay the amount due.
This will obviously have an adverse affect on your credit rating.
