Inaccurate costs estimate

By on Nov 6, 2012 | 7 comments

Costs Practice Direction 6.5A states:

“(1) If there is a difference of 20% or more between the base costs claimed by a receiving party on detailed assessment and the costs shown in an estimate of costs filed by that party, the receiving party must provide a statement of the reasons for the difference with his bill of costs.”

Has there ever been a more widely ignored Practice Direction?
