At the time we were happy with the result and our Barrister did not take action to enforce the reward as the opposition had legal aid as he was on income support. I have the paper work but I am not sure if we will be allowed to claim this as it is very old. Can we still claim after 17 years?
I have been asked to look at this for you. What does the court order sayexactly?
Why has this cropped up after 17 years? How much money are we looking at?
Thank you for your reply.
The court had 4 points as follow,
1 - That the claim of the first and secound plaintiffs herein be struck out
2- That the counterclaim herein be stayed and be not proceeded with without the leave of this court or the court of appeal.
3- That the plaintiffs do pay to the defendants(us) their costs of this action such costs to be raxed if not agreed
4-that the defendants shall recover their costs of the claim not recovered by them from the plaintiffs and their costs of the counterclaim from the estate oof the said Daniel Georgis Daniel deceased such costs to be taxed on an indemnity if not agreed.
The court dose not think fit to give leave to the plaintiffs to appeal from the order.
Please note that the plaintiffis had legel aid.
Our Councellor did not apply for the cost at the time and we did not fellow the case. However I just want to clear all this and put my mind to rest that we did not loos any of our wrights. Please let me know if we can claim the costs back as we have lost a lot of money because of a fake claim by the plaintiffs. Thank you.
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thanks for your patience,

We paid all our solicitors costs including a concellor whcih was appointed by our solicitor to represent us. We paid them aprox £40,000. Please could advise if we can claim this cost back as it is 17 years old. Thanks.
I am sorry for the delay in my reply as I have sold my house and complitio date was 01/05. The reason I am making a claim know is the fact that then I was not able to pay for the cost but know since I have sold my house I can make a claim against the planintiff. However can you advise if I can still claim the costs from the Legal Aid as they paid the Planitiff the cost to take us to court. Please advise. Thank you.
