Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Has the case be allocated to the small claims track already?Alex
Ok - are you claimant or defendant?
Ok - if you accept the offer then you are only liable for:
1) The issue fee
2) Fixed Solicitors costs on claim form, if they had instructed at that point
3) The hearing fee can be refunded
But those are the only costs you would be liable for if you accept, no other costs.
If you refuse the offer and the Claimant does better at trial, the Solicitors may be able to bring that letter of offer to the attention of the Judge after liability
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Yes that is what I said, the hearing fee can be refunded.
So you would only be liable for issue fee, thats it.
Does that clarify?Alex
