Defendant paid $89 000 to plaintiff’s legal practitioners and on March 10 2016 signed an acknowledgement of debt for the balance of $89 989, 34 and agreed to pay the said balance in installments of $10 000 per month up to May 31 2016 and of not less than $15 000 per month thereafter until the debt was fully paid.

The defendant agreed to pay in terms of the Law Society Tariff collection  commission of $4 649, 73 on the original debt of $178 989, 34.
