If you are considering debt recovery as a litigant in person here are some frequently asked questions:
A litigant in person is an individual, company or organisation who goes to court without legal representation. This means they do not use the services of a solicitor or barrister and may be entitled in some circumstances to fee reductions where certain criteria is met.
Many litigants in person choose to act without legal representation for financial reasons or personal preference. The numbers of litigants in person have risen significantly in recent years for both civil enforcement and High court enforcement.
Litigants in person can pursue both money claims and possession claims to obtain a county court judgment (CCJ). If the case value exceeds £600, a litigant in person may also wish to transfer the case up to through the High Court and obtain a Writ of Control.
A litigant in person can transfer up a CCJ to the High Court for the cost of £66. The instruction process is straightforward, allowing a litigant in person to instruct a High Court Enforcement Officer to act to recover the outstanding debt.
Part 46 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR 46.5) allows a litigant in person to be paid costs. The amount paid will either be £19 per hour or where the person can prove financial loss, the amount that they can prove to have been lost for time reasonable spent on doing the work.
