Hello Amanda my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, there is ALREADY a County Court Judgment?
In order to set aside you need to complete form N244:
There is also a Court fee of £255 to pay.
The Court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to set aside Judgment. But in order to do that you need to show that you have some defence to the claim. If you admit the claim then you cant set it side.
But you need to show that you have some defence. The Court will not explore the defence at Court as it will not be a trial but will just need to be satisfied that there is some defence that you have.
If you lose the application costs are likely to be around £1000.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If it was a previous address then that is a valid defence.
If you did not enter an agreement then that is not a valid defence.
As such if you make the application I think you will be successful.
So yes, you appear to have a valid defence.
Does that clarify?
1. You did not have an agreement with you.
2. There has not been good service of the CCJ
3. You never signed a CCJ
If you are liable, you would be liable for their liquidation fee yes.
You have a defence - yes.
THEY did not have any agreement with you.
Great. I think you have a real defence.
Can I help with anything else?
Yes N244 is fine.
You can ask for me on other questions if you want.
What do you need to know?
Yes you need to mention the address. Don't mention about the pg
You just have t say it was not served at your valid addrsss.
Correct and yes.
The Court will list the matter for hearing and take the details when you send a covering letter with the application and send it to your local Court.
The covering letter has your name and address on it.
In any event on page 2 it says applicant's name and address.
This is also where you put your details.
