Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
This means that there is now no hearing, the other side can apply do a hearing but must do so before 27 th January 2016. If they do not it means the claim against you for which this court hearing relates is struck out, ie gone.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Hi Alex

so where does this leave me will there be bailif knocking at my door etc can I still drive the car?


Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
A bailiff won't come, the hearing is adjourned generally.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

So can I assume the claimant will be re applying for a hearing.

also why would be like this.


Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
I can't say Karl but the hearing has been adjourned generally so not live. Without a court order the bailiff can't take the car.
Does that clarify?
