If a court case is won and costs are awarded as well as a refund of deposit what exactly does this mean ? For example if you have paid lawyers certain fees up front and you win a case should you also get a refund of those costs ? TIA.

Your lawyers are not usually the defendants. Anything won in court is usually against the named defendant. Winning anything in court is one thing, getting the money is another? What happens if the defendant has no money or assets? See Can't Pay? We'll Take It Away! On UK TV.

Thanks Kavanagh. I have received monies owed my question is in relation to what is covered if 'costs' are also awarded.

If an order for the defendant to pay an amount of the plaintiffs court costs (full or part) was awarded to you that should be included in the money you received.

The arrangement you have made with your lawyers to pay their fees has nothing to do with the court.

Please pm me or let me know WHICH lawyers you used. It seems some lawyers/solicitors are not as reputable as you would like to think.

If costs are awarded then I would expect to recieve ,on top of the amount claimed, all costs incurred. That is lawyers upfront fees paid plus any other costs which are permitted to claim. You need to know what costs the court has awarded i.e., full or part. and see proof of the courts decision.
