Safin (Fursecroft) Ltd v Estate of Dr Said Ahmed Said Badrig (Deceased)

Practice – Consent order. Prior to the hearing of an application for relief from forfeiture, the parties had entered into a consent order which had required the representative of the deceased's estate to meet certain conditions by specified dates. The representative applied to the court for an extension of time by which to fulfil those conditions. The judge, in his discretion and in pursuance of furthering the overriding objective at CPR 1.1, granted the extension. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellant's appeal as the judge had been correct to consider that he had had the power to extend the time limits in the consent order and he had, on the facts, properly exercised that discretion.
