Senior Costs Judge Hurst
The Issues:The Claimant sought to recover his ATE Insurance premium. When costs came to be assessed, the Defendants served a Part 18 request to establish whether the Claimant had BTE insurance. They asked firstly whether the Claimant (or anyone else in his household) had building or contents insurance, and if so they requested the insurers' names and whether those policies provided Before The Event legal expenses cover. Secondly they asked why, if there was BTE cover, it was not used; whether the building/contents policy wording had been inspected; and if not, how the Claimant's solicitors knew that it did not include BTE Insurance legal expenses cover.
