Looking for an alternative to small claims court to help get your money back?
If someone owes you money, you might consider taking them to small claims court. It’s often the first thing a lot of people think to do when they are owed money and it’s easy to see why. You might assume that small claims court – as it involves the law, lawyers and a judge – is an assured win, a fast way of getting paid by a debtor. You might think that a debtor will be scared by the court process and cough up instantly. But, it’s not always the most effective or efficient way of recovering your funds, and there are certainly no guarantees. In fact, taking someone to court can be a time consuming and stressful process.
This is why we always recommend enlisting the help of a debt collection agency, such as Cobra Financial as a small claims court alternative. Instead of navigating the complexities of small claims court and dealing with lengthy delays, you can start debt collection proceedings immediately.
Our mission is to get you paid!
Effective small claims court alternative debt collection services can have a lasting effect on the debtor and highly increases the potential of getting you paid.

A small claim is a case that has been allocated to the Small Claims Court. Predominantly concerning claims worth up to £10,000, Small Claims typically involve claims for faulty goods, services, unpaid bills or rent arrears.
If you have had a problem with a service or product; you rent and your landlord hasn’t repaired a problem worth up to £10,000; you are owed a refund, or you have been injured in an accident, then you are fully eligible to make a Small Claim.
To make a Small Claim in court you will need to provide a brief statement of the facts, how much money you are claiming, and the amount of interest you are seeking. After a claim has been issued, the defendant must then file a defence; after which the judge will make a final ruling.
There are several types of typical claims in Small Claims Court. These include pursuing unpaid invoices, breach of contract claims, sale of goods and services disputes, claims for unpaid rent, building disputes and professional negligence claims.
In England and Wales, there is a starting fee of £25-£410. This is completely dependent on the size of your claim and can be paid by credit or debit card.
There are several alternatives to Small Claims Court. These include agreeing an out of court settlement, mediation with a trained mediator, pursuing the help of a government agency, or instructing debt collectors such as Cobra Financial Solutions.

GET YOUR MONEY BACK
If you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions, then call one of the Cobra team on 0151 526 4222, and let’s get started.
- IS YOUR DEBT OVER £1000?
- CAN YOU PROVIDE EVIDENCE CONFIRMING THE DEBT’S LEGITIMACY?
- ARE YOU READY TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK?
WHAT’S THE COST?
In order to confirm instruction, we charge a fixed fee. This amount is calculated on the estimated work involved in the collection. (Some cases are more complex than others.)
However, this fee is recoverable. For B2B debts, we are able to apply interest and compensation, in accordance with the late payment of commercial debt act, 1998. Once all funds have been collected from the debtor, we charge a 15% success fee.
But knowing you won in the end – well, that’s priceless.
