    Ok thanks ill look into that.

    Also I noticed that their court is in Leeds which is 228 miles and 4 hours from me.
    Does that mean I would have to travel all the way there and if so how much costs could I claim.
    It is generally heard in the Defendant's home court (or one that is convenient) in this type of case.

    I did mentioned in the court form(SCT) my local(home) preferred court, but it does say they generally its held at the claimants court?
    Nope, as above.

    But if the rolls were reversed and they have to come over to my court, could they claim excessive travel costs?
    Generally speaking, each side bears their own costs in Small Claims court cases.

    P.S its also worrying me that they must think that they can win the case or they wouldn't have continued with the claim?
    Not so in many cases.
    There is quite often a measure of gamesmanship in court cases.
    The other party, having already paid the claim issue fee, do not have to pay any more until the case is allocated to a venue & track (although it will almost certainly be Small Claims.)
    So they often bluff it out, hoping the Defendant will capitulate under psychological pressure.
    They have nothing to lose (& everything to gain if you do fold.)


    Many
    Thanks

        So please make certain and check with the court that it has actually been discontinued if you haven't received notification from the court itself.
