Need to serve statement of costs

Forthcoming change to Costs Practice Direction deletes the current CPD 45.3:

“No party should file or serve a statement of costs of the detailed assessment proceedings unless the court orders him to do so.”

That will mean that the existing CPD 13.5(4) will kick in:

“The statement of costs must be filed at court and copies of it must be served on any party against whom an order for payment of those costs is intended to be sought. The statement of costs must be filed and the copies of it must be served as soon as possible and in any event –

(b) for all other hearings, not less than 24 hours before the time fixed for the hearing.”

I wonder if this was intended.  The current system works perfectly well, even if it does sometimes cause some nasty shocks at the end of a hearing.

    simply brings it in line with the rest of CPR, which is a good thing in my view.

    Might also stop silly Defendants alleging to make “inclusive” Part 47.19 offers “including all costs of DA to date” (always gives me grief trying to explain that to defendants), when they dont know what the DA costs are they have caused!
