Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
You mentioned a small claims action but is this a simple procedure action in the sheriff court?
In that case the issue of expenses is a minor one. There aren’t really any mega expenses in a simple procedure case. £150 at most. However you can simply say that there should be no expenses due to or by either party as they did not produce a quantification of their claim at the time the action was raised. I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
