Good News for Litigants in person

The Civil Procedure Rule Committee agreed on the 1st October 2011 to increase the hourly rate a litigant in person can charge for their work in preparing their case from £9.25 to £18.00 per hour. 

So remember to make a detailed note of the time you spend preparing your claim so that you can provide the Judge with a detailed note at the final hearing and if you win he will then be able to award you some costs.  You also need to make sure that you take copies of all invoices and receipts you have in respect of Court Fees and Expert's reports obtained to support your claim.
