A very long time going matter - over 4 years in dispute.

The bank recently applied for summary judgement hearing for the balance payable after Financial Ombudsman Service determination. The bank lost Financial Ombudsman Service and I was awarded over $30k and compensation, however still an amount is on a shortfall loan sale.

I emailed them 10 days ago. They haven't fully complied with the Financial Ombudsman Service determination yet. I haven't reversed some fees supposed, too. So after receiving my email, they now want me to consent to adjournment of their summary judgement application. Think they need to check, they haven't jumped the gun.

Should I do this? Effect on costs awarding? If they are not ready to go, then too bad? What if I refuse to consent?

I am ready. Well, I would be if I had received their outline of submissions on time. Consent?
