Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

Hello all, I’ve got an upcoming section 21 review very soon. The time limits for defence have elapsed so at what point can I apply for a judgement in default?
The reason for this question is that as far as I’ve understood it the review is for the judge to make sure all paperwork is in order before directions to a hearing is made, but what’s the point in a hearing for section 21 if all paperwork is in order and no defence pleaded.
Now if at the review all the paperwork is all ok and there is no defence, is it then treated as an accelerated claim? (paper-based decision for the judge)
Or it goes to a hearing regardless, which would mean having to wait another 6 odd weeks for the date?
Which is why I’m thinking of applying for judgement in default as soon as the paperwork is okayed by the judge.
