Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
I wouldn't cancel anything until you have got the money. I assume your claim is in the small claims court.
Once you have the money a letter or email to the court should be sufficient. Simply tell them that the case has been settled by agreement and yo wish to withdraw your claim.
would an email confirming that he has agreed to pay a sum of money be sufficient. I am finding it hard to attend pre trial hearing next week
When is he going to pay?
Wait until he has paid and then tell the court that the matter has been settled by agreement.
thank you I will leave a feedback
