An application to set aside a judgment is a formal application made to the Court.
Generally, such applications are made when a default county court judgment (CCJ) has been awarded against a respondent and they want to challenge it; usually this will be because they either did not receive the claim form or did not respond to it. If an application is made and is successful, then the matter goes back to the claim stage and the respondent is given the opportunity to file their defence. If the matter was already being enforced, then this too will be cancelled.
Strict criteria apply for those who want to make an application.
