3. COST ORDERS A. DEFINITIONS i. PARTY/PARTY COSTS (COSTS ON AN ORDINARY BASIS) Party/party costs are those costs recoverable by the successful party from the unsuccessful party. These costs are generally less than the full amount of solicitor/client costs incurred by the party. ii. SOLICITOR/CLIENT COSTS Solicitor/client costs are costs incurred by the party for services rendered by the solicitor. This amount is payable regardless of whether the party is successful or not. iii. COSTS ON AN INDEMNITY BASIS In some cases, the court may order indemnity costs to be paid by the unsuccessful party. This means that the unsuccessful party will cover all the solicitor/client costs incurred by a party to the proceedings.
