Court Fees increase: How will it affect you?

  • Posted

The Government is implementing a new fee structure for the English civil court system which will come into effect on 22nd April 2014.

Although some fees are remaining the same, being reduced or withdrawn the reforms will see some stark increases to a range of fees which in some cases will be up to 216%.

For example, fees for compensation claims between £5,000 and £10,000 will increase by 81% from £245 to £445 and a standard-fee of £280 will be brought in for claims not involving money such as repossession of property.
