182. Consent judgments and orders

(1) This Rule applies where all the parties agree the terms in which a judgment should be given or an order should be made.
(2) A Court officer may enter and seal an agreed judgment or order if the judgment or order is listed in paragraph (3) and the Court's approval is not required by these Rules, a practice direction or any ADGM enactment before an agreed order can be made.
(3) The judgments and orders referred to in paragraph (2) are —
(a) a judgment or order for —
(i) the payment of an amount of money; or
(ii) the delivery up of goods with or without the option of paying the value, or the agreed value, of the goods,
(b) an order for —
(i) the dismissal of any proceedings, wholly or in part;
(ii) the stay of proceedings on agreed terms, disposing of the proceedings, whether those terms are recorded in a schedule to the order or elsewhere;
(iii) the stay of enforcement of a judgment, either unconditionally or on condition that money due under the judgment is paid by instalments specified in the order or as security;
(iv) the setting aside under Rule 41 of a default judgment which has not been satisfied;
(v) the payment out of money which has been paid into Court;
(vi) the discharge from liability of any party; or
(vii) the payment, assessment or waiver of costs, or such other provision for costs as may be agreed.
(4) Rule 183(1) applies to judgments and orders entered and sealed by a Court officer under paragraph (2) as it applies to other judgments and orders.
(5) Where paragraph (2) does not apply, any party may apply for a judgment or order in the terms agreed; and the Court may deal with any application under this paragraph without a hearing.
(6) Where this Rule applies, the order which is agreed by the parties must be drawn up in the terms agreed, must be expressed as being "By Consent" and must be signed by the legal representative acting for each party to whom the order relates.
