Hi, thank you for your question. In response to the specific questions:
1. No, you should ask for these costs immediately so that if they remain unpaid you can claim interest later
2. Yes, the £1500 is owed to you and should form part of the Form E
3. You may wish to wait until the financial matter is decided as the costs can be used as part of any negotiations and can be claimed from any of the respondent's assets.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
Yes, a D61 is a costs order and there is no expiry on it but you should serve him with it so that he is aware that it has been ordered. At the moment it would be better not to enforce it as it will be useful as part of the AR negotiations and settlement
