Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What cost part are you stuck with please?
No, a phone call can still happen. Some customers prefer this.
Do you know the principal sum, excluding costs you want to make an offer for?
A part 36 must contain the following:
1) say its a part 36 offer (remember to head without prejudice save as to costs)
2) List the offer
3) Say it is open for 21 days and intended to have the cost consequences of Part 36
So you can make a part 36 offer on a global sum, to have interim payments, if any deducted.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They accept. Then that part of the matter is settled. Costs are then assessed by the Court or agreed between the parties.
Interest, if pleaded, is usually around 2% or so, given the bank of England base rate of 0.25%. You can plead up to 8% but you wont get that.
Does that help?
You just say: I offer the global sum of £xxxxxxxx
Yes you would say that it requires the return of money etc.
You just make it clear what you want out of it.
Set it out line by line.
1) I offer to settle for the sum of £
2) You return the money to you
3) Pay wasted costs
Does that clarify?
You dont need to put the bundles together unless ordered.
But the Court will look at the points of dispute and replies.
The Court then goes through to see whether each item was reasonable and proportionate.
I would keep quiet on those points.
Does that clarify for you?
