The offer of 1 September is 66,000 including your solicitors costs.
Hence, your solicitors costs will be deducted from the claim and you would get the balance.
So it depends how much time and correspondence et cetera et cetera has been spent by your solicitor in dealing with this.
That then arises the subject of proportionality as to whether its reasonable to spend GBP57,000 in legal costs which taken from the GBP66,000 on offer would only leave you with GBP9000.
There appears to be a letter from your solicitors to you, dated the day before, 31st of August, where they confirm that they have taken the matter to court and presumably the Defendants are defending although the Defendant does say in their letter of 1 September that if you don’t accept the 66,000, they will go to court.
You may get more or less in court but you would normally get all your costs back in addition.
It’s a risk.
In your solicitors earlier letter of 10 May, they just warning you that you have to make truthful statements.
In their letter of 9 September, they say that they have sent you a copy of the original terms and conditions and the Conditional Fee Agreement. I don’t have those terms and conditions and I don’t have that fee agreement.
