FIXED COSTS APPLY TO DEFENDANTS AS WELL AS CLAIMANTS

The matters dealt with in this piece are examined in great detail in my three volume, 1,300 page book Personal Injury Small Claims, Portals and Fixed Costs – price £50 and available from Underwoods Solicitors here.

Kerry Underwood offers consultancy services in relation to this and other matters and details are here.

In

Woodward v Hyder A2/2017/1929

the Court of Appeal, by consent, allowed the claimant’s appeal against the order of Nottingham County Court that he pay the costs of an interlocutory application on an open basis, rather than paying fixed costs in accordance with CPR 45.29H.

This is a reminder that fixed costs apply to defendants as well as to claimants.

The rule is crystal clear.

Not all judges get it.

The claimant here not only lost originally, but also lost at the first appeal stage.
