Please can you tell me if there is anything that can be done.

I was going to defend this order as the property in question is derelict and uninhabitable.


I called the court a week before the court date to ensure that it was ok to attend as this was during the Welsh lockdown, I was advised that they would except my testimony via Skype or email.


I completed my defence against the liability order and on the day I rang the court to advise I was about to send it. 
An email was received back advising it was received and it was forwarded to the legal adviser in court.


A day later I received an email from another council who had been using the same court and they advised that they had my defence, they asked for my address in order to send the defence to the right council. 

I have now contacted the council who requested the liability order and they said they have received no defence on this account and the order was approved so they will be looking for payment.


any advice please.

Outside my area of knowledge I'm afraid, but I suppose first thing on Monday you contact the court, tell them what has happened, and complain that they mis-directed your submitted defence and as a result the order was upheld by default without the court considering your defence.  Say you want this put right as it is the court's fault that your defence was lost.


(Should you not have served a copy of your defence on the claimant yourself?  Can you just rely on the court to do so?)


See what more knowledgeable posters think.
