is it worth going to small claims?
« on: September 29, 2020, 06:40:44 pm »
hey,

new here, so sorry if this is in wrong place of the website.

i have an unpaid debt for £150 that's a few months old, i can see with this site with a late payment compensation calculator with the extra compensation i can probably get it to £200 or more . my question is, is it worth it in anyone's experience? is it quick to get to court? or will they get scared and pay up. i'm confident i will win if it went that far, i think they're just trying it on

Little cases are at times called 'money claims'. They're intended to be basic, so you most likely needn't bother with a solicitor.

Before you start a small claim, attempt to tackle the issue another way on the off chance that you can - for instance, by submitting a question or utilizing formal intercession.

Here and there, simply beginning a small case is sufficient to make the individual or business you're asserting against pay, so you probably won't need to go to court at all.

Just remember that it might not be worth making a claim if itís going to cost you almost as much as youíre claiming, so in this case I think it's better to avoid any court ;)
