The Rules of the Superior Courts (Costs) Rules 2019, make provision in Part XII of Order 99 for the making of a lodgment or a tender in satisfaction of costs.

The party entitled to make a lodgement must lodge the appropriate documentation with the Accountant’s Office of the Courts of Justice. The Office of the Legal Costs Adjudicators does not have any function, or jurisdiction, with regard to the process.

The process for making or taking up such lodgements is described, together with copies of the forms required, in a new section on the Courts Service website.
