Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. Dear *****, you were very badly advised by your solicitor or whoever took the case for you against the executor. An application for legal costs and expenses should have been made immediately at the hearing of the case. You can go back now and seek to have an order for legal costs and expenses made against the executor. However, your prospect of success are greatly reduced. This is simply because of the lapse of time. Accordingly, you should get yourself a different solicitor (because there is a potential negligence action against your former solicitor) and make an application for legal costs and expenses against the executor. Be aware that you will have to have a good reason as to why you now want legal costs and expenses and why they were not asked for at the time of the original hearing. YOu need to convince the Judge who hears the case of the essential justice of now granting costs and legal expenses.
