Hoping someone can advise me, I have defended a county court claim and the claiment failed to comply with a unless order.

The Judge ordered the claiment to pay costs.

So do I sent the claiment/claiments solicitor my costs of x and say if they want an cost assessment that will be added on make it x,

or do I send them a percentage that I am prepared to accept.

or do I have to go back to court to get costs assessed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Andy,

Yes we have a general form of judgement or order that states claiment must pay the defendants costs of the action.

Okay so you simply write an informal letter to the claimants solicitor requesting same with a breakdown/bill of costs referring to the Judgment dated XXXX.

Then see what you response you get.

Hi Andy,

Do you think it is best if I write and tell them my costs to date are X, if you want an assessment of costs I will have to get a costs draftsman and that will be added on to the bill making it x and see what happens or do I have to break down the costs in the first letter.

Or  do I not put forward an offer of what costs I would accept, but wait until they come back with an offer?

Costs must be agreed between parties if the court has not stipulated an amount.So stage one is to write as stated an informal request stating your costs and a breakdown..its called a BIll of Costs.If they do not agree or accept .then you move to stage 2 to have the costs summarily assessed with a hearing. 

 

If you costs are fair and justified they should accept your first request.
