Is this Tomlin order for consent to set aside a CCJ valid after an n244?

I have received a consent order from the solicitors representing the claimant regarding a claim that was sent to the wrong address. I now have a ccj on my credit file which I’m really hoping to have removed as it will impact my job and relationship for that matter.
The ccj concerns a debt of £2100 that I paid into up until 2020. I have already submitted and paid for the n244 form applying to have it set aside, and now 2 months later (and after lots of emails) the claimants have agreed to consent to having it set aside.

I’ve read some horror stories of judges rejecting consent orders so I wanted to ask if this one is valid?

the solicitor also wrote the below so I’m wondering if there’s anything else I need to do afterwards e.g. do I need to complete a new n244. Also, I have been ordered to pay within 14 days but how will I know that the consent order has been sent?

“Upon receipt of the signed order, we will arrange for this to be countersigned (a copy will be provided for your record) and then arrange for the countersigned order to be lodge with the Court for consideration and approval.”

    I commented when you raised this issue a month or so back on a different board.

    Yes - it actually looks like a good deal to me.

    You get the ccj removed and a settlement at £1835

    They get a lump sum.
