The Guarantor claims his signature is forged and therefore put in an application to set aside judgement which resulted in an initial hearing in early July.

At the end of the hearing the judge concluded that a further hearing was required (scheduled for the end of this month) with more evidence, witnesses, etc.

The courts state that I am required to pay them £75 for this hearing fee - but why ?

The courts have already made judgement against the Guarantor for this particular claim which he never contested until the bailiffs began to approach him for recovery when he then put in his application. So therefore surely he should have to pay.

At the inital hearing it was the judge who made the decision to adjourn the case to a further hearing not myself ! - I am confused please help.
