    Form N225 - request for judgment

    An ex-tenant left owing us money and was paying us back the debt at an agreed sum each month.

    They stopped paying and ignored our communications, we went to small claims, they ex-tenant replied to our claim with the help of CAB and we now have an order in our favour via Form N24. It says 'The Claimant shall have permission to enter judgment in default in the sum claimed and costs'.  We called the court after 7 days and they confirmed the defendant hasn't applied to set aside the order.

    They are otherwise unable to advise as to next steps. Having researched this I believe we need to fill out form N225 - request for judgment and reply to admission. However I can find no guidance notes to form N225. It says to fill our Part A OR Part B but neither seem to quite fit as it was a defended claim (so part A doesn't work) but Part B says the defendant admits all money is owed which they don't. Anyone had to deal with this and can advise?

    Thank you. MCol doesn't seem any help either!

    Are you a member of the RLA? they can provide advice via there helpline / email.

    If I recall correctly they also have the N225 form and guidance available to download from the website.

    Thanks for your reply. We use the forms via .gov.uk. No guidance for this form which is the problem, when we've used other forms they've often had the guidance either on RLA or .gov.uk. Advice is to wait for MCol to update but it doesn't seem to be doing so several weeks after getting the form N24.  

    We'll give it another couple of weeks but if not we will seek some legal advice about next steps which thus far we've never had to do despite some tricky experiences in the past which is a personal defeat that I might just have to deal with!
