Graham Hill Reveals New Proposal To Make Court Action Easier

Sunday, 10. July 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

Buy a car costing more than £5,000 and have a problem with it that requires court intervention and it could cost you a fortune in legal costs. However, this may be about to change if new proposals go ahead. The Government plans to increase the value of ‘small claims’ from £5,000 to a more sensible £15,000. This means that legal disputes relating to new and used cars could now be resolved in the Small Claims Court, a much faster and cheaper process than going to a full trial. Costs are fixed with no expensive lawyer costs to put court action out of many individuals’ reach.

The losing side must pay court fees that range from £25 – £300 plus any reasonable travel expenses. The current limit of £5,000 hasn’t been changed since 2000 which has made many cases that the court was set out to deal with ineligible due to inflation.

If approved, the change will become effective from April 2012. I think this is an essential step, do you agree? By Graham Hill
