Informing clients of the right to apply for a waiver
Where recovery of costs arises you should always inform your client of the right to apply for a waiver. At the same time you should make clear to the client that it is a right only to apply – the decision is not a formality, and we will consider each application on its merits. You can advise the client of whether you think the application is likely to succeed or not. You should print and give the client a copy of the guidelines in this part of the Circular.
