Irregularity is a minor defect in a party's case which the other party may not be able to oppose again in the suit if he does not do so immediately he becomes aware of the defect.


For example, if a court paper is served on House A instead of House B, but where a party in House B becomes aware of the service and appears in court without complaining while he also reacts by filing his own papers, he cannot subsequently complain about the wrong service. The issue of wrong service will be treated as mere irregularity which cannot nullify a case.
