I have just been handed this question as you had been waiting. You can apply to set aside a judgement but you do normally have to apply quite quickly. In any event you can only serve a statutory demand when the debt is over £500.00

Do you have a defence? That is the key point in any application to set aside a judgment. The fact that you have paid £8000 would imply that you agree the judgment. You can only set aside a judgment if it was irregular - you did not receive the papers and they entered judgment in default where you had a valid defence would be such an example.Please remember to rate positively and I will still be able to help
