Hi, I'm hoping somebody can help me with the 3 civil court tracks because I keep finding incomplete or conflicting information. I'm pretty sure the following information is correct, I just need the blanks filling in please:

Small claims track - Personal injury cases under £1,000 or all other types of case under £5,000

Fast Track - Personal injury cases between £1,000 and ??? or all other types of cast between £5,000 and ???

Multi Track - Cases which don't fit into the small claims or fast track.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok this will state the claims track AND The court they may go to:


Under £5000, will go to the County Court, Small claims track.
£5,000 - £25,000, will go to the Country Court, Fast track procedure.
£25,000 - £50,000 Either High Court of Couty Court, multi-track procedure.
Over £50,000 High Court Multi-Track procedure (although these cases CAN be heard in the county court).

So, to clarity. Under £5k is Small claims. £5k - £25k is fast track and £25k+ is multi-track HOWEVER the multi-track can ALSO be for cases under £25k WHICH ARE COMPLEX.

The limit for the small claims track has been increased from £5,000 to £10,000! (The limit of £1,000 remains the same for personal injury and housing cases.)

When researching, the best thing to do is to look at the primary source i.e. the Civil Procedure Rules. Any search engine will lead you to them. The relevant rule for the small claims track is r. 26.6(3).

https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/pr...ules/part26#26

To reiterate - the small claims track limit is £10,000 (not £5,000).
