Civil Litigation Claim Tracks
When you apply to the court to make a civil litigation claim, once a defence is received from the other side, your case will be allocated to a particular track - small claims track, fast track or multi-track. The track will depend on the amount in dispute and the complexity of your case. The more complex your case, the more points of contact there will be with the court. Most claims are heard in County courts unless they are over £100,000 in value or have complex points of law, when they may be heard in the High court.
All defended cases are allocated to one of three tracks:
- Small Claims Track: Most claims under £10,000, excluding personal injury and housing disrepair.
- Fast Track: Between £10,000 to £25,000
- Multi Track: Claims for over £25,000, or for lesser money sums where the case involves complex points of law and/or evidence.
