Under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), costs in certain applications, such as summary judgment applications, are fixed. This means that the recoverable costs are predetermined and limited by the CPR. However, it is possible to request a higher sum if the fixed costs do not adequately cover the actual costs incurred. Despite this, the client must understand that if the court does not grant the higher amount, they will be responsible for any shortfall in accordance with the terms of their engagement letter with the law firm. This ensures transparency and proper client expectations regarding the potential financial implications of the application. 

Key Point: Fixed costs under the CPR limit the recoverable costs in specific applications, but a higher amount can be requested. Clients must be aware that they are responsible for any shortfall if the higher costs are not awarded.
