The Civil Procedure Rules provide that the small claims track is the normal track for:
any claim for personal injuries which has a financial value of not more than £5,000 where the claim for damages for personal injuries is not more than £1,000;
any claim which includes a claim by a tenant of residential premises against his landlord for repairs or other work to the premises where the estimated cost of the repairs or other work is not more than £1,000 and the financial value of any other claim for damages is not more than £1,000;
any other claim which has a financial value of not more than £5,000.
We intend to publish a consultation paper, which will include consideration of the case track limits, by the end of the year.
