GETTING THE COURT FEE RIGHT
Posted: March 20, 2015
I have had lots of enquiries from those anxious to pay the correct fee. What if the claim later rockets in value ?
My one practical thought is that , at the point of issue , you prepare a file note explaining why you pitched the claim at the level that you did .
Keep an eye on quantum and do not be shy about amending and then paying the relevant higher fee .
If you had the wisdom to get numbers right every time you would not be reading this . Judges will be sympathetic save where they see a cynical attempt to avoid a high fee by pitching in a silly value.
