In every case the Regulations require that the Master should give his reasons in writing. Therefore, it is unusual for the Appellant to be notified of the outcome of the appeal on the day of the hearing. There is inevitably a time lag between the oral hearing and the despatch of the written reasons. Only rarely will the Costs Judge consider material submitted after the hearing.
A successful appellant is entitled to ask for his costs in connection with the appeal which are normally assessed by the Costs Judge at the end of the hearing. It is important that any appellant should submit details to the Costs Judge at the hearing of travelling expenses or any unusual expenditure in relation to the appeal.
In all cases where an appeal is successful the court fee paid (currently £100) is added to the sums allowed, unless the Costs Judge otherwise directs.
