Kostic v Chaplin and Others


“When deciding costs in a contentious probate action, the two long-established exceptions to the normal rule that costs followed the event that survived the introduction of the Civil Procedure Rules were: (i) where a testator had been the cause of the litigation, costs should come out of the estate; and (ii) where the circumstances led reasonably to an investigation of the matter, costs should be borne by both sides.”
