Thank you for your letter on the 4th December 2019. You informed me that you are prepared to offer a refund of £60 for my claim issue fee and a further payment of £2000.00 to cover my expectation loss in full.
I have decided to accept your settlement offer.
As soon as the transfer of funds is confirmed I will notify the court that I am withdrawing the claim. However please note that the deadline for paying the hearing fee is the 13th December 2019 and I will proceed with the payment if the transfer has not been received.

Just typed this up, pls advise if any amendment is needed. will send this off first class tomorrow.
But if the feepaying day comes up, then the fee should be paid and it is up to them to refund it. By writing back to them and telling them to transfer and warning them about the fee date, you are putting the ball squarely in their court and if they miss the date then they can't say they didn't know and you simply insist on them paying costs or else you go to court. There is no way that they will suddenly refuse to pay the fee and prefer to go to court.
