You should certainly mention it - since it meant you were not able to assess the costs

Does this read like an OK grounds for appeal?Grounds for appeal1. The court followed neither the correct procedure nor reached conclusions on a sound understanding of the facts.2. The court did not cause the W to follow FPR 9.27 in allowing form H1 to be presented during the hearing right at the moment W counsel made an application for cost without notice to H. H position was prejudiced in that he had no time to understand let alone challenge costs before responding.3. The court did not apply appropriately FRP 2010 28.3(2) and did not properly motivate its decision to make an order for costs4. Subsidiary to para 2, the court did not apply appropriately FPR 2010 28.3(6) and 28.3(7) and did base its order for costs on unsound assumptions and incorrect facts leading to a disproportionally high cost order that is incongruent with the court’s own logic5. Subsidiary to paras 2 and*****did make errors of fact in the conclusion it reached regarding the order for costs regarding:
a. The actual occurrence of tardy or incomplete disclosure by H
b. The impact of the alleged tardy or incomplete disclosure on W cost
