I am intending to apply to the Small Claims Court for

Customer Question

Hi, I am intending to apply to the Small Claims Court for reimbursement for damages to my land and fencing caused by an ex equestrian tenant. Evidence for this claim was supplied to him. His father in law has now instructed his business company solicitors, who are asking me to supply them with the evidence. Do I have to do this and continue to deal with them, even though their client has the evidence, or can I get on and make a claim as this is dragging on and on and they are clearing prevaricating and denying he is liable.

How much are you claiming?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Just over £5000. I have run my business for 22 years and used this court system 3 times with success each time.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 9 months ago.

Ok - at this stage you do not have to provide evidence.

When its allocated to a small claim you have to provide evidence 14 days before the hearing.

So no, you do not need to provide it now.

You can provide it 14 days before any trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
