Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

You either apply to the Senior Costs Office in London or your local County Court.

You can complete form N208:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n208-claim-form-cpr-part-8

Send it to Court and ask for costs to be assessed.

The Court will list it for a hearing
