Small Claims

Small Claims

Claims less than £10,000

For claims of value less than £10,000, a free service might be provided by the Small Claims Mediation Service. There is no real limit as to the type of claim that can be mediated under that service. The value of the claim is important (i.e. not exceeding £10,000), rather than the issues.

The court mediators therefore deal with a wide range of disputes including;

  • Contracts for goods and services
  • Non-payment of professional fees
  • Non-payment of rent
  • Insurance disputes
  • Building disputes
  • Debts and unpaid invoices
  • Negligence claims
  • Boundary disputes
