Welcome to JA
Please can you provide a copy of the judgment to review.
Ok i will review and return to you
Please note regardless of whether the defendant is a sole trader or in a partnership he will be personally liable to meet the judgment.
Do you understand what I have stated if yes I will proceed to the next step.
Given the defendant is not a company and is likely a sole trader he will struggle to avoid liability of his business. The def and the business share the same liability unlike a company where director and the company are separate entities.
Therefore I suggest you consider the baliffs option.
I hope I have clarified the position if not please let me know

You commenced proceedings against the party that entered into contract with you and in view of this the person named on the contract is the liable party. Having reviewed the documents the party that you entered into contract is the party you sued and since it is a sole trader he is personally responsible for the actions of his business.
