General Legal Advice

We assist with general legal advice and cover all aspects of litigation (formal court action). We aim to use creative methods to settle disputes and to prevent lengthy legal battles.

Rescission of Judgement

If a defendant in a court action does not respond to a summons within the specified time limit, the plaintiff will generally be entitled to obtain judgment in its favour by default.

 

You would only be entitled to apply for the rescission of a Judgment that was granted against you if the other side consents thereto in writing or, that failing, if you can show that at the time that the judgment was entered, you were not in wilful default and that you had a valid and bona fide defence to the action instituted against you.

 

If you get consent for rescission of judgement it is a relatively simple matter to have the judgment set aside. If you don't get consent for rescission of judgement you can successfully apply to court for a rescission of the judgment only if you can show that at the time that the Judgment was entered, you were not in wilful default and that you had a valid and bona fide defence to the action instituted against you.
