Following on from the announcement of increases to court fees for money claims, there are now plans afoot to increase the fee for a possession claim by £75.
Possession claim court fees last went up in April 2014. The fees introduced at that time are as follows for proceedings started in:
• High Court – £480
• County Court – £280
• Possession Claims Online (PCOL) – £250
The proposal is to increase a county court claim to £355 and PCOL to £325. The fee for claims started in the High Court will not change.
There is a six week Government consultation which ends on 27th February. You can contribute to the consultation HERE
