Hell and thanks for asking for me again
The figure of amount owing is x3 £6092.40
Then you have interest only on the £1523.10 figure
Then the total amount owing would be £6092.40 + interest. This is the total amount due
The Court fee is calculated on this total sum
So you need to particularise the elements separate but add them all together
Can I clarify anything for you?
Alex thanks for getting back to me. The way that you have broken it down is how I understood it. However in the "Claim Amount" field the notes adjacent to that box say "Without Interest." Consequently as I am claiming interest on the £1523.10 figure only, I thought I had to put this number in?
Indeed if I go the next screen after putting in £6092.40, then as I have ticked the interest box, this paragraph is automatically added:
The claimant claims interest under section 69of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of8% a year from 17/04/2014 to 22/08/2014 on£6,092.40 and also interest at the same rateup to the date of judgment or earlier paymentat a daily rate of £0.33.
I am confused as I thought I could only claim interest on the debt (deposit) of £1523.10 not the debt + penalties?
I am concerned about getting it right as I don't want to put in a wrong figure in a wrong box and have my claim dismissed because of a mistaken input - especially as it will cost £410 in the first place

The amount on the right of the field is correct
Total claim: £6775
Court fee £410
Which amount please?
Which is the correct Court fee
For a claim to £5001 to £15,000
So its correct.
Total claim amound £7185
So the "Claim Amount " is £1523.10 not £6092.40 as I have inputted?
I was getting confused with terminology
"Claim Amount" vs "Amount claimed"
No it shows £6775 on right
I have amended it
Leave it as it is
Thanks - which figures are in the "Claim Amount" field?
I have amended your claim so that its right
I see, is the statement ok i.e. concise enough?
Ok - are you still logged in I'd like to take a look please whilst we are still chatting
Yes I am
Let me see if I can login at the same time
So the "Claim Amount" & "Amount Claimed" fields show the same figure of £6775.75 which is the Grand Total
You have shown the in particulars the breakdown
Indeed - I was happy with the maths & the working out, but concerned about what figures go in which boxes, and did not want to have it thrown out because I made a mistake with the wrong figure in the wrong box
Ok - they have been amended.
In any case you can apply to amend the claim if there is an error
Do you know why there are 2 different terms i.e. what's the difference between "Claim Amount" and "Amount Claimed" ?
I dont know actually, I didnt think there is
Sure but there is a fee if you get it wrong so the h/d told me
Is that ok?
Yes nearly there - I trust your judgement
I was confused about what to put in the "Claim Amount" field because of the word INTEREST next to it. From our earlier conversations I understand that interest can only be claimed on the actual debt i.e. £1523.10, so I thought this figure would go there, and then in "Amount Claimed" the figure would be as we have it now i.e. the deposit & x3 amount for penalty = £6092.40 and add the interest whilst I was there of £683.35 = £6775.75
Ok - your total claim is right. Do not worry about anything else.
Agreed the important thing is the total amount. Bear with me for a moment as I'm still confused...
You dont need to be
Just fill out the rest of the bit at the bottom
Sign it, pay the fee and that starts the claim
I have checked over it, all is fine
Thanks - I just don't understand why £6775.75 is in the first field, because that's not the debt owed to me, i.e. the deposit. Again it says Interest next to it which was a red flag when I saw it i.e. interest can only be paid on the debt, not the Grand Total. Are there x2 different types of interest? Where I'm I getting confused?
Because that is what you are claiming.
I have looked over the pleading
It is fine
You dont need to worry
You say you are claiming £1523.10 for deposit
You say you are claiming x3 for the breach
You say you are claiming £683.35 for interest
It is all clear
Just confused about which figures go in which boxes
Ultimately would the claim get thrown out if one box had the wrong figure even if the Grand Total was correct?
I have done everything
You just need to sign, pay and submit the claim
Ok I'll take the plunge - and as you say the claim will probably get knocked down anyway...
As always if I could invite you to rate before you go.
Of course, and thanks for your assistance and warm bedside manner
Credit where credit is due!
I'd offer to buy you a drink if you were nearby as you've helped soothe my concerns!
Wait until the end of this, but of course if you want to leave a tip you may
Thank you for your kind words
Quite so - have a great Bank Holiday w/e, best Matt
Thanks - and you
