CONSENT ORDER could you please advice if the following seems

Resolved Question:

CONSENT ORDER
could you please advice if the following seems appropriate. I am aware that I am seeking advice on drafting and not legal advice . I am the claimant in a building dispute and don't want the defendant to claim they are entitled to some other costs after I have signed the order. I am a litigant in person and Claimant and have negotiated default judgement on counterclaim to be dismissed. (reply to counterclaim was lost in post and I have applied for this default judgement on counterclaim to be dismissed as I have evidence that this was sent)
UPON the Claimant’s application dated 26 April 2015
AND UPON the parties having agreed to the terms of this Order
BY CONSENT IT IS ORDERED THAT:
The judgment dated __ / /2015 shall be set aside and the Claimant has permission to defend the Counterclaim in the terms of his Reply and Defence to Counterclaim, which is dated and signed --/--/ 2015. Re-service of the same is dispensed with;
The Claimant shall pay the Defendant’s costs of the application, which are agreed in the sum of £-- and payable within 14 days, so by 4pm on ------.
We consent to an Order in the terms above.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
The consent order starts you agree to pay the costs of the application. If you don't then do not sign it. Therefore as it stands they are entitled to their costs.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thanks , I have agreed to pay them £100, cost of them making application for default judgement was £50+solicitors costs . I just want the default judgement on counterclaim to be set aside as it has no chance of success.

Can the defendant claim any other costs other than what is agreed in the consent order for the default judgement on counterclaim to be dismissed? I think they have realised that it is likely that this default judgement will be dismissed. Thank you for your help again

No, they can't claim any other costs than those agreed.
Does that help?
