is my question now being passed to another?
I have just gone through a provisional assessment of costs and have paid £20k interim and £7k costs of the assessment. I declined a hearing because was scared of incurring more costs. the figure i under duress agreed on was £48k. I just want to know what happens now. does the judge decide on the final figure, or do I have to liaise with the claimants solicitor. They said they are in the process of finalizing the costs from the draftsman.
we went through the preparation for the costs hearing, points of dispute etc... I declined the hearing because of more possible costs involved if I lost. I agreed the costs under duress. and now it has had the provisional hearing, where the judge has awarded the costs of the assessment, which I have paid. I want to know what happens next? does the judge then decide on the remaining costs? and issue a certificate of costs?
The claimants solicitors are finalizing their interest ?
yes I went through the points of dispute. I declined the costs hearing and under duress agreed costs of £48k. I have told you all this at the beginnig!. It went through a provisional hearing and now the judge has ordered me to pay the costs of the assessment. what happens next?
what do you mean sealed. So will I hear from the courts again with the final costs?. Or will the claimants solicitor tell me how much I have to pay?.
Yes thank you I just wanted to know the next step. as I do not trust the claimants solicitors. they said they are finalizing the interest etc. so will they send that to the courts and then I will hear from the judge with final decision.
