Court Fees – Small Claims Track
Court fees are paid direct to the court
When we have assisted you with filling out your claims form, from the details you give to us, we will return it to you to check and sign and forward to the court with the appropriate court fee. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy and truthfulness of the content of the claims form as when you sign it you are declaring that everything contained in it is true.
The Court fees payable are made separately and directly to the Court are in addition to our charges below. There may be further court fees to pay on the filing of further forms. It is usual that if you are successful in your claim that some of the fees are repayable by the losing party but this is at the discretion of the court.
|Claim Amount||Court Fees|
|Over £1,500 – but not over £3,000||£115|
|Over £3,000 – but not over £5,000||£205|
|Over £5,000 – but not over £10,000||£455|
The Notice of Allocation issued by the court identifies those claims requiring a hearing or a preliminary hearing and the fee payable. The hearing fee depends on the amount you’re claiming.
|Claim Amount||Hearing Fee|
|Up to £3,000||£170|

You can if you wish open the claim directly on line and there is a saving of between £10 and £40 but we will only deal with claims opened directly through the court (unless you are already involved with a claim already opened on line). Furthermore, if you are in receipt of benefits or on a low income you may be entitled to a remittance of all court fees but this is a facility only available, if you make a claim directly through the Court and not on line.
