In Ayr v. BOS plc, the pursuer had contended that on a clear construction of standard condition 12, sch 3, Convenyancing and Feudal Reform (Scotland) Act 1970 and other provisions in that Act, the lender had not been entitled to recoup its legal expenses against its customer because it had failed to serve a pre-litigation 'calling-up notice'. In light of RBS v. Wilson and others, it ought to have done so.
The case, which was not without additional legal complications, settled extra-judicially for a refund of £600, representing almost half of the lender's costs. GLC will continue to work on how more consumers can secure possible refunds of legal costs, added to their mortgages.
