Consent to set aside a default judgement I am the claimant

Customer Question

Consent to set aside a default judgement
I am the claimant in a building claim. litigant in person. not a small claim.
Defendants solicitor have obtained a judgement by default claiming they did not receive the defence to counterclaim(lost in post). I have made an application to set this aside. They have indicated that they will consent if I paid them £200 for their application costs. As I am a litigant in person will the above still apply i.e. granting of a consent order on a judgement by default on a counterclaim by consent of both parties or does one need to attend court(obviously with both the claim and the counterclaim be allowed to continue)

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
