Customer Question

I am involved in a civil litigation, and a settlement figure has been agreed. My solicitor has advised a Tomlin order. This has been drafted, however it does not reflect the actual settlement figure. The schedule only includes the balance outstanding. I have raised this with my solicitor and expressed my concerns that the claimant could later claim that the full settlement figure was not paid, and I would have no evidence to refute it. Can you please confirm that I am within my rights to request that the Tomlin order reflects the full settlement figure, the deposit already paid and the balance outstanding with the schedule of instalment payments to pay off the balance. If the full settlement figure is not recorded, it gives the impression that I have paid a lesser amount. I have been told by my solicitor that the claimant who is a solicitor will not agree to any amendment to the draft. Surely it is in my best interest to ensure that the correct settlement figures are recorded.

I would appreciate a response as soon as possible as I need to get back to my solicitor by the morning. I was given a response time of 8 minutes, and this was 30 minutes ago. Thank you
