We were awarded cost against us for £137.391 in a court case but the other parties acknowledged we did not have them funds and agreed that if we paid £20.000 then that would be agreed as full and final settlement. How ever this was party to a Bankruptcy Case the Judge changed the paper work on the order to say my £20.000 was on account only this was not agreed on the consent order signed by both parties. The other side did not inform us of the changes to the consent order that was signed buy all parties and agreed. When we received a copy all the wording had been changed with out our consent and stamped by the Court. Just to be clear the other side accepted our £20.000 and now have that money for a consent order that is not what we signed Thank You
Yes I do
I also have copy of stamped order
Question 2 says I paid £20,000 on account meaning I am still liable for £117,391.04
This wording was not in the draft and i would not have agreed to that wording as this can now been seen that if they don't get the cost back in the Bankruptcy then i am seen as still liable for £117,000 this was not agreed
I am more concerned that the Judge changed the wording with out consent
