Increase in Court Fees from 21 March 2016


21 March, 2016

The Civil Proceedings and Family Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2016 comes into force today and imposes an increase in civil court fees.

The court fees have now increased as follows:-

  • In possession claims, the issue fee is now £355;
  • For possession claims through PCOL, the issue fee is now £325;
  • The fee for general applications made on notice in proceedings is now £255;
  • The fee for general applications made without notice or made by consent is now £100.

The fee for issuing a non-money claim which is not a possession claim will remain at £280. Therefore, the fee for civil injunction applications will remain at £280.

In addition, the fee to request a warrant for possession will remain at £110.
