123   Costs agreements not subject to assessment

(1)  The Registrar is to decline to assess a bill of costs if:
(a)  the disputed costs are subject to a costs agreement that complies with Division 5 of Part 3.2 of the Legal Profession Act 2004, and
(b)  the costs agreement specifies the amount of the costs or the dispute relates only to the rate specified in the agreement for calculating the costs.

(4)  This clause does not apply to a costs agreement applicable to the costs of legal services if a legal practitioner failed to make a disclosure in accordance with Division 3 of Part 3.2 of the Legal Profession Act 2004 of the matters required to be disclosed by section 309 of that Act in relation to those costs.
