I fell upon this forum while searching for some answers regarding a court hearing I have in 7 days and I was hoping that someone could clarify some information for me.
A CCJ was issued against me by Gladstones Solictors on behalf of UK Car Parking Management in Oct 2018.
I vacated the property in October 2017 and the original ticket was issued in July 2017.
I found out about this in May 2019.
I applied to the court via a N244 Application and provided them with a well written letter along with evidence that I had departed the property in October 2017 and thus didnt have a fair opporunity to return a claim form.
I received a letter from my local court offering me a date very quickly.
Considering the above I am confident I have grounds to have the CCJ set aside and am confident I will be successful.
Today I received an email from Gladstones Solicitors offering me a settlement via a consent order (attached)
However I am unsure where I stand legally.
What is the process with a consent order?
Am I guaranteed that the CCJ will be removed via the judge on the basis I pay and sign a consent form?
Am I better to appear before the judge rather than settle?
If I appear at the court hearing and the case is ruled in my favour, is it likely that I can request to be compensated for the £255 fee?
Thanks in advance,
