The small claims limit increased to £10,000 from 1st April 2013.
Concerns were raised that parties with low value claims were incurring legal costs disproportionate to the amount in dispute. Winners of cases allocated to the ‘small claims track’ rarely recover the cost of legal representation. As a consequence of the increased limit, many more parties are having to litigate on their own without legal advice or support. The move has been met with mixed reaction.
