Reply To: Recovering OPs while appeal pending


We have decided to bite the bullet and inform claimant’s solicitors that we will suspend recovery as and when leave to appeal to C of A is granted. I suspect they will dispute this, in which case we will probably have to agree to suspend, based on the authorities cited by Stainsby. Worth a shot though! We are talking about £35,000 OP in HB alone – so keen to start recovering! Thanks for your help. An interesting issue, I’m surprised it has not been considered by Commissioners/Courts more recently, particularly as the regs are silent on the matter.
