Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, did you ever appeal that Judgment?
There is not a separate claim for costs, just the main Judgment which includes costs?
Ok. Then yes they can pursue the costs element. If the court ordered you pay the costs then yes you do.
You can have the costs assessed by the Court if you think they are high, but generally you bear the costs of that assessment.So yes, even if it goes past 2/12/16 you still have to pay the costs. There is a Court order. Unless you overturn that order costs are due.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They dont need a specific letter from the Claimant.
If the Claimant has previously given instructions then costs can be reclaimed.
There is a Court Judgment against you, therefore the Solicitors can seek those costs.
If you have any doubt you can complain to the Legal Ombudsman http://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/
However in the event there is a Court order then costs can be recovered.
No. they are acting on behalf of their client and costs are payable to them. Not the claimant personally.
Does that clairfy?
No because they are owed costs.
The solicitors are on record. Therefore any costs would be payable to them and not the claimant. That is how it works with court orders.
They are acting on behalf of the claimant and therefore payments are made to them, not the claimant direct.
Enjoy Sunday .....
