Fees to be paid with allocation questionnaire, small claims track, value of the claim £5000
I am the Claimant. I have gone through updated EX50 from HMCTS re fees. I would be grateful if you could inform me of the exact fee payable with the allocation questionnaire. I appreciate your time and experience is used on more important issues however I find EX50 a little confusing .. Thank you
My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help with your question today.
For the small claim track for a claim worth more than £3,000 the fee is £335.
Please see page 5 of the fees booklet.

Thank you for your reply. I have already paid the fees for the claim. I have been asked to complete and return directions questionnaire , but is is unclear if there is a fee and if so the exact amount

Understood. Is the claim being defended? Have you received a defence? Is the matter definitely going to trial?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Claim is being defended.Likely that it will get settled at mediation. I have recieved a defence and replied to defence

There is no allocating fee to be paid with the directions questionnaire (used to be called allocation questionnaire)
However if the matter proceeds to trial there will be a hearing fee payable.
But no fee for allocation to small claim.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
