To whom it concerns, I have been sued by a client, whom when I couldnt pay, attached the furniture in the house I share with a friend.

He in return issued an affidavid stating that the furniture is his and in return the client issued a writ of execution, this means we have to appear in court on the 13th of December 2019. 

In the mean time a property lawyer sued both of us for loss of income after they cancelled our Offer to purchase. This property lawyer attached and removed our furniture, which is being auctioned on the 4th of December 2019.

My question is, can we issue some form of statement to the client in the first matter in order not to go to court, as there are no furniture left to dispute either ownership or anything else?
