Changes to the Small Claim Court

The Small Claims Court limit is set to increase from £5,000.00 to £10,000.00 on 1 April 2013. The general rule in respect of Small Claims cases is that each party bears their own costs and as such you can not recover your legal costs from your opponent even if you are successful. If you have a claim worth £5,000.00 or over, instigate it now.
