Counting the costs in QCAT? Think again…
19 October 2015
Costs do not follow the event and are not automatic in the Queensland Civil and Administrative tribunal (QCAT) and should not be sought prior to the determination of the substantive application. Solicitors should advise clients in writing of the limitations on costs in QCAT and other jurisdictions with similar regimes, and pay particular attention to sections 100 and 102 of the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2009.
