I recieved a letter offerring me 665.66 (the full ammount before going to court) which I was willing to accept even though I had taken further action and incurred 80 court fees so I retured letter on thursday saying that I wouldf accept this but on the next day I recieved a cheque for 855.60 which is the full ammount I issued for in my court case. DO you think I can just put that cheque in the bank and it'll be fine or because I agreed tgo the 665 offer will the bank cancel the other cheque? I'm hoping it clears before they notice i accepted the lower offer. Also how do I go about informing courts I've settled now?

Hmmmmm I'd put the cheque in the bank and see what happens was there a letter accompanying the cheque?

I'd keep hold of the letter pop the cheque in the bank and see what happens. If the worse comes to the worse you can always pay back the difference when the cheque clears:)

You should have recieved a notice of disscontinuance whith your settlement, this will have to be returned to the court to cancel the proceedings.

You should have two copies, one should be returned to the court and one to the defendant. Nothing else needs to be done although you could send the following letter.



Dear Whoever

Ref: Your Offer of Settlement


Account: xxxxxxxx

Sort Code xx-xx-xx

Claim No: XXXXX in XXXX County Court


I acknowledge receipt of your letter date xx/xx/xx and your settlement offer of £XXX


I accept your offer as full and final settlement only for this claim of bank charges made on my account between xx/xx/xx and xx/xx/xx(dates of first and last charge)


I accept this offer without prejudice and I reserve the right to make any further claims should you apply future charges that may be considered unlawful under common law or in violation of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 or Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.


I will be willing to withdraw my claim and will send a Notice of Discontinuance to the Court upon receipt of cleared funds of unconditional full settlement of my claim


I am also not prepared to agree to any confidentiality clauses you try to impose, unless of course your client wishes to make an offer of due consideration in addition to the amount of £xxxxx, in order to be afforded this privilege by myself.


I trust that you will find this arrangement acceptable.


Yours Sincerely
