Interim costs certificates

An interesting approach from the Senior Courts Costs Office Guide 2013 in relation to applications for interim costs certificates in provisional assessment cases:

“An application for an interim costs certificate which is made in a case proceeding to a provisional assessment will not be listed for hearing on a date before the provisional assessment takes place unless some good reason for such an early listing is shown.”

  1. I don’t see a problem with that as long as the provisional assessment takes place quickly… oh, wait a minute..

  2. If PAs are listed within the timeframe – most of mine have been – then it should not really be an issue.

    I suspect, however, that a listing well outside the 6 week timeframe may constitute good reason. How far outside the timeframe is anyones guess!
