Part 36 costs offers
I recently received an offer as follows:
“We confirm that we can agree to accept the sum of £18,800.00 in settlement of our costs, this offer is made subject to S1 Part 36 CPR, applies to the whole of this matter and is open for acceptance for 7 days.
If we do not hear from you within that period we intend to set this matter down.”
I wonder what possesses people who have clearly never read Part 36 to think that making an offer purporting to be a Part 36 offer is a good idea.
