Sometimes the debtor will oppose a claim. It depends upon the value of the claim as to how the court will deal with this.
You should be able to deal with defended small claims court matters without legal representation.
Defended Small Claims Court Matters
If the value of the claim is less than £10,000, it will likely be dealt with as a small claim by the courts. If it is of a value greater than £10,000 we recommend you consult a solicitor, as if not a small claims court claim, you will be at risk of paying the debtor's legal costs.
