No, I was in such I state as the documents were at a different court and the IP produced a typed order for valuation that wasn't in the original papers, I was almost sick! The judge said he was only there to sort the date for valuation and although he read from a statute book that the property would have reverted back to me, he said that would be dealt with at the final hearing. I didn't say anything, the judge almost told me off saying that I had to comply with the IP.
He didn't read what I had submitted as the evidence was at a different court.
He ruled on the order just presented the same day by the IP which is to have the house valued with a view to realising equity then possession and sale of the property.
He said he wasnt there to decide whether the property had reverted back to me.
Sorry, forgot to mention, my defence was that the application was out of time therefore the property had reverted back to me.
Also, he had not followed proceedure in that he did not seek the recommended internet valuations suggested by the insolvency service. The first I heard that he thought there was equity in the property was 2 weeks before the application was filed.
All of this was not seen as all the documents which included my defence were at a different court.
