This answer was rated:

Apart from the cost of the application- what are the potential losses of bringing a civil claim via the small claims route? For example is the person able to use a solicitor to represent them and claim costs in excess of, say £1000?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
No. The other side can't claim costs. They can only claim costs if you have acted unreasonably. But generally on a small claim no legal costs are awarded.
