Report Small Claims Court in General Chat Posted November 2, 2008 Have you checked out with some advice at your local Citizen's Advice Bureau? I have had some really good advice from these people in the past. It does not really matter that the amount is small, it is as you say, the principal involved. If your case is solid (meaning you don't have any worries about affording principles) I'd definitely go for it. I hate being ripped off!
