COURT FEES: CLAIM NOT LIMITED TO AMOUNT IN CLAIM FORM
This is dealt with in my new book – Personal Injury Small Claims, Portals and Fixed Costs. This is three volumes and over 1,300 pages. For more information and to order a copy please click here.
Earlier this month I completed an eight day trek in the Sahara Desert to raise money for the Lord’s Taverners cricket charity for disadvantaged children. Please go here if you would like to make a donation.
the High Court of Justice held that the fact that the claimant had limited the amount claimed in his Claim Form to £10,000.00 did not limit the power of the court to give judgment for the amount which it finds the claimant is entitled to recover – see CPR 16.3(7).
It does not matter that the claimant has only paid the court fee relevant to a claim not exceeding £10,000.00.
Here the claimant made it clear that he was willing to pay any additional fee.
The court awarded £140,000.00.
