657L Charges for account assessments

(1) The Chief Justice may make a practice direction under this rule setting the maximum hourly rate chargeable by an account assessor.
(2) At any time the hourly rate for an account assessor may not be more than the maximum hourly rate at that time set by the practice direction.
(3) For an account assessment—
(a) the account assessor is entitled to charge only for the number of hours reasonably spent on the assessment (which number may be, or include, a fraction) including time spent reading the material served under rule 649 (5) and any other relevant document; and
(b) the account assessor’s total charge is the amount calculated by multiplying the number of hours (including part hours) reasonably spent on the assessment, by the account assessor’s current hourly rate.
(4) However, for a particular account assessment, an account assessor may agree with the parties to charge an hourly rate that is less than the account assessor’s current hourly rate.
(5) In this rule—

"current hourly rate" , of an account assessor for an account assessment, means the hourly rate of the account assessor applicable for the account assessment that is set out in the list of account assessors at the time the account assessor was appointed to carry out the account assessment.
