How much is a Small Claim ?
If the amount of money claimed is £10,000 or less then it is likely to be heard in the Small Claims Court.
However, if your claim is for personal injury it will only be heard in the Small Claims Court if the claim for the injury itself is not more than £1,000.
For housing cases involving a landlord's failure to repair the property the claim will be heard in the small claims court if the cost of repairs or the compensation claimed is not more than £1,000.
