How Much Does It Cost to Take Someone to Small Claims Court? - Cobra Financial Solutions Ltd

No-nonsense, straight-talking debt collection service

Small claims court is predominantly for simple cases that don’t involve large amounts of money or multifaceted issues.

That said, small claims court isn’t always necessarily the cheapest or simplest option available to a debtor. Most of the time, the best solution is to avoid small claims court and instruct a debt recovery team, just like Cobra.

Here’s exactly why in a bit more detail.

What is Small Claims Court?

Small claims court is for modest cases that involve lesser amounts of money and more simplistic issues. These types of claims often involve faulty products, poor service, being owed a refund or money for work you’ve completed or to resolve disputes with your landlord.

Sometimes categorised as ‘money claims,’ the entire small claims court process should be straightforward; however, it can become convoluted, nasty and extremely time consuming – hence why you should instruct a much cheaper alternative instead.

That cheaper alternative being Cobra Financial Solutions.

Indeed, you have the right to make a claim in small claims court up to six years after you initially paid for the service or product. That said, why wait that long when you can action our team of professional debt recovery agents and have a solution in under 48 hours?

What small claims court fees can be issued?

Small claims court fees are based on the amount you are claiming, plus interest.

Therefore, if your claim is worth £300, then your fees will amount to £35. Furthermore, at the other end of the scale; if your claim is worth more than £200,000, then your fees will amount to £10,00.

Moreover, fees can be issued for:

  • A faulty product
  • Poor or inadequate service
  • Being owed a refund
  • Landlord disputes
  • Not being paid for work completed
  • Accidents and injuries


Indeed, even most money advice websites suggest you try to solve the problem another way. And, what better way to try and solve your problem than actioning a team of professional debt collectors with over 75 years’ worth of experience.
