Small Claims Services

Small claims are designed for litigants in person to represent themselves at Court.

A small claim is a claim for money with a value of less than £10,000.00 (excluding personal injury claims, for which the value is £1,000.00 or less).

Small claims however are not always straightforward and whilst the costs of instructing a Solicitor may not be recoverable, advice is sometimes required on certain aspects of the claim.

We offer one-off small claims services designed to assist litigants in person in dealing with their claim, whether you are the Defendant or Claimant.

Below is a list of services and the costs we will charge.

Once you have a Judgment, you need to consider how you are going to get paid by your opponent. There are a number of different options you will need to consider and you may find our Enforcement Guide useful.
