I'm new here and I'm sorry if I'm placing my question in the wrong section.

 

I lost a civil court case and I was ordered to pay the the defendants' legal costs which are about £90,000. I appealed the case and the appeal was supposed to be heard in a month time.

 

Recently I sent "without prejudice" letter to withdraw the appeal in an exchange of waving the cost order (£90,000) against me so basically settle the case and each party pay its own expenses.

 

The good news is that they accepted the offer. My question is .. how should I proceed after that? .. I do not have a legal representation .. should I sent to the county court informing them about what happened or should we write and sign a contract between the parties ?

 

I would really appreciate your help.

Did they accept the offer in writing

 

Without Prejudice is privilieged information, you start sending copies of that settlement to any tom dick or harry then you will be in trouble without their consent

 

You can use the Without Prejudice status if the other party later does not hold his part of the agreement

 

These sorts of settlements are normally drawn up via a consent order signed by both parties

 

Ask their solicitor to send you a consent order to sign so you can vacate your procedings against them
