    Court fees for Possession Claims to rise again

    Apparently it has just been announced by HM Courts and Tribunals Service that from 9 March court fees for possession claims will increase again by £75:
    • Possession claims online (PCOL) to rise from £250 to £325
    • Paper-based claims to rise from £280 to £355

    Money claims are also affected.

    I'd not mind if it resulted in better service!! Slow and overworked courts.

    It'd be better handled by new lettings ombudsman in my view. But that'd be a big change in law.

    The fee increase for possession actions was under consulatation so is not guaranteed. However, the MoJ did indicate that the court fee increases were to be in phases so the possession fees might yet still increase.

    Can see why the courts system wants to try and get more money in, as someone else pointed out the courts are slow, overworked and very frustrating to deal with! Hopefully moving more to an online based system in the future will help solve this..
