I received an email today from thesheriffsoffice.com and was surprised to learn that the government are in the iddle of a consultation to raise fees for their online service for claims over 10,000 and in the same process appear to be slippping in a plan to also raise fees for possesion!


There is now a proposal to raise the County Court and PCOL court fees by 75, which the Government estimates will generate an additional 17 million in income.

There is a six week consultation period which started on 16 January and runs until 27 February 2015. Details on how to respond to the proposals are given on page 28 of the Enhanced Court Fees document.

This is scandalous, especially as in April 2014 they already put these fees up by 150% for the online service and by 60% for the paper claims - even though the service has got worse and takes progressively longer!
