Increased Court Fees – Again…

Court fees have been increased once again. A full list of the increased fees can be found here.
Fees for possession claims have not changed. However, the fees for enforcement orders have been increased. A warrant of possession to instruct the County Court Bailiff has increased from £110 to £121. Where landlords wish to enforce through the Sheriff the fee to transfer enforcement up to the High Court has increased to £66.

These fee increases are again above inflation. With the current funding issues faced by our courts such increases should continue to be expected with little or no notice.
