COURT FEES: CLAIM NOT LIMITED TO AMOUNT IN CLAIM FORM

“In Harrath v (1) Stand For Peace Ltd (2) Samuel Westrop [2017] EWHC 653 (QB)the High Court of Justice held that the fact that the claimant had limited the amount claimed in his Claim Form to £10,000.00 did not limit the power of the court to give judgment for the amount which it finds the claimant is entitled to recover – see CPR 16.3(7).
It does not matter that the claimant has only paid the court fee relevant to a claim not exceeding £10,000.00.
Here the claimant made it clear that he was willing to pay any additional fee.
The court awarded £140,000.00.”
