Stop Press Update: Court fees increase from 9 March

Stop Press Update: Court fees increase from 9 March

Tuesday 3rd March 2015

As set out in our note of 2 March, the government is proposing to substantially increase some civil court fees.  The changes were expected to take effect from April 2015; however, the government yesterday announced that the increases will come into effect on 9 March 2015, subject to the outcome of a further debate in the House of Lords this week.  The Law Society has criticised this move and has sent a pre-action protocol letter to the Ministry of Justice.  For now, however, you should give careful consideration to issuing claims this week in order to avoid the increase.
