What if I don't want my claim to be heard by the Small Claims Court ?
You can ask the court to take your claim out of the Small Claims Court, if you can show one of the following:
1. Your case involves a difficult question of law or has complicated facts.
2. You are accusing your opponent of fraud.
3. That both you and your opponent have agreed that the case should not be heard in the Small Claims Court.
4. That it is unreasonable for your claim to be heard in the Small Claims Court, because a Counterclaim has been made for more than £5,000 or because of your personal circumstances.
