Thank you for the clarification. I’m sorry to read the order and how it has been made against you. The appeal will have to be on the basis of an error in law by the judge. Reality is you’re going to need to know what the judgement is to find that out. You’re firstly going to have to apply for permission to appeal. Only once you’re given permission can you then go on to appeal.
Generally in order to obtain permission to appeal, and ultimately to succeed at the appeal hearing, it has to be shown that the court or tribunal you are appealing from made an error of law or an error of fact, or that there was procedural unfairness. This is why you need the judgement. You can apply for this from the court and they will need to get a transcript of it. However, this may take some time and, as you may know, you only have 21 days in which to put in an application for permission to appeal.
Generally the appeal court will not hear any new evidence. The appeal court does not conduct a retrial but only reviews the decision of the judge below.
You can find the court guidance for appeals here.
Until there has been a overturn of the order, you are still in a position where you need to pay the £20,000. With regards ***** ***** generally and then you can, if there is no agreement to what those costs should be, apply to the court for them to assess the costs of that file.
