Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
How much is your claim for?
OK, thank you.
You need to start with a letter before claim (see the template below):
This sets out what you are seeking and you give them 14 days for settlement.
If the amount is not settled, you start the small claim here:
To issue online, with a claim between £500 and £1000, the fee is £60. You claim this back from the other side if you are successful in your claim. See here for a link to the EX50 which sets out all fees in the civil courts:
Can I clarify anything further at this stage?
My pleasure. If these are part of your claim then yes, you can include them.
I hope this clarifies things?
If so, please take a second to rate my response with 5 stars as this will credit me for my time.
Thanks and do let me know if you have further questions, follow ups are part of the service, even if you have already taken the time to rate for me.
You are best instructing a direct access barrister for a court hearing - they will appear for a fixed fee and just do the important part which is representing you. Solicitors will charge for running the case which will cost more. For a quote you could contact sites such as www.clerksroom.com. I help this helps.
Please do take a second to accept my answer and provide a 5 star rating to credit me for my time. Thanks.
