Once they have made the application to set the judgement aside, you are no longer able to enforce with bailiffs or in any other way. You have to wait till there has been a hearing and for the outcome of the hearing to go in your favour before you can enforce the judgement.
If they failed to file a defence and he will immediately applied for default judgement, it’s very common for defendants to then apply to set the judgement aside. Opposition to the application would rarely succeed and hence, once you have received judgement, it’s always wise to wait some months before trying to enforce to avoid the application to set aside.
If a claimant wait several months and then enforces there is more chance of opposing any later application to set aside on the basis of the delay.
