Does anyone know the cost for summary judgement application.


It's over 10k. The fee quoted says the amount if up to 5k. But I can't see one for the amount I will be claiming.


Can anyone advise? If not I will ring the court and ask.

Yes, please let us know when you find out although maybe somebody else will come along with the answer for you.


Can you tell us a bit more about it because summary judgement is very rare and you have to be very sure of your ground.

I would rather not as it's very delicate. Just surprised that the courts own website does not give required figures

In the past, summary judgement procedures under order 14 RSC only occurred in High Court proceedings. Although it was always available in the County Court, it was very rarely used. Now that the limits for the County Court action is are so much greater and actions in the High Court are actively discouraged when County Court procedure is available, I imagine that the same culture has carried over.


As you say, you should call the court.


However I'm sure that you have done enough research to know that a very basic requirement is that there is no arguable defence to the claim. You can be sure that for a court to give a judgement without having heard anything from the other side, there will be a very high bar. Also, a summary judgement would normally be accompanied by all sorts of provisos involving costs to be awarded against the claimant if the summary judgement is subsequently overturned et cetera et cetera.


You are potentially treading on dangerous ground.


Do let us know what happens

Standard N244 application fee with hearing......no connection to the value of the claim.

We could do with some help from you.

Be careful as this will be a fast track claim so if you lose your summary judgment application you could be hit with a hefty costs bill from the other side.

    • can i put anything in the LBA about seeking any costs at this stage, for the amount of effort in trying to resolve?
    • if this is too long, basically i sent it in, they checked it over, they agreed with the store again, they sent it back, now i'm onto letter before action - as you suspected would happen       ok so i got hold of someone in customer services who asked for the bag to be sent in.   their response is, predictably:   I would like to confirm that I have now inspected your backpack and it is our belief that the issue is due to natural wear and tear and not an inherent manufacturing fault.   I will today return your backpack to you at our cost.   Please accept my sincere apologies for any disappointment caused.   to which i replied:   For a bag to suffer from natural wear and tear to the point of ripping in multiple places after only four months of use would surely suggest it was not of satisfactory quality nor fit for it's intended purpose?!?!   The Consumer Rights Act states:   (3)The quality of goods includes their state and condition; and the following aspects (among others) are in appropriate cases aspects of the quality of goods—   (a)fitness for all the purposes for which goods of that kind are usually supplied;   (b)appearance and finish;   (c)freedom from minor defects;   (d)safety;   (e)durability.     I would suggest the bag has been used in line with part 3a but that it has failed under part 3e and arguably part 3c.   Please reconsider your position on this. I would much prefer to avoid drawing this issue out any longer and do not relish the pursuit for costs should we be unable to reach an agreement without further action.   fast forward three days later i received the bag back and no reply.
    • Thanks for all your points above. Given me a little bit of an insight into what I am up against. My son moved into the property in August 2016 so it’s been nearly 3 years. Passed several inspections with minor ‘issues’ that have been put right and re-inspected fine.  I just feel the labour for a room to be decorated is going to be £20+ per hour and a new carpet will swallow the £500 deposit. are we legally entitled to obtain our own quotes as she is seemingly reluctant to allow us the keys back.  Have requested a photo of said stain in living room as it was wet when I left the property.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
