DISP App 1.11 Costs

DISP App 1.11.1G

Where the former scheme in question, as it had effect immediately before commencement, included provision for the award of costs, the Ombudsman may, under article 6(6), on determining the relevant existing complaint, award costs in accordance with that provision (irrespective of whether those costs were incurred, or relate to anything done, before or after commencement) and section 230(6) and (7) and paragraph 16 of Schedule 17 to the Act apply in relation to the enforcement of such an award of costs in the same way as they apply to awards of costs made under the Financial Ombudsman Service procedures.
