A couple of years ago my landlord took me to court over rent arrears, I counter- sued as the property was in very a very poor state of repair. The case went to a magistrate's court and he lost. He had to pay his court costs, but not mine. I had Legal Aid. My Mother has recently died and left me some money, not a great deal, but more than I had expected. I have been told that the Legal Aid board can claim back my legal aid costs from this money. Does this mean that I won't  see any of it?
