Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much is Judgment for please?
Did you also send a defence to the Claimant?
Ok. You should send a copy of the defence to the Claimant and ask them if they will consent to the matter being set aside.
If they do then you just need to make a formal application using form N244:
There is a Court fee of £100 for this. The court will then consider it and set aside.
If they wont consent then you need to make a formal application using the above form. But there will be a hearing and the cost for this type of application will be £255.
The Court will set the matter down and decide whether to set aside Judgment.But you should attach the defence to the Claimant and application notice.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
All you need to show is that:
1) You have a realistic prospect of successfully defending the case and
2) You acted promptly.
The reasons for no reply is not relevant, just that you have a defence. That is all.
The date the Court receives the correspondence is all that counts, yes
Does that clarify?
No. The date it is received. That is 2 working days after posting classed as deemed service.
