About the Small Claims Court

The Small Claims Court addressed most matters of civil litigation where the dollar value sought is less then $25,000 and $35,000 as of January 1, 2020. The Small Claims Court is a statutory court, meaning that it is only empowered to grant certain relief. The Small Claims Court court can award money for losses suffered from an accident, a breach of contract, wrongful dismissal, slander, and may other issues but cannot order the return of property or make declarations.

Some of the most common case in the Small Claims Court are issues between contractors and home owners. The court also rules on many cases involving real estate transactions that have failed in some way; for example, a failure to disclose pre-existing damage prior to the sale of the property.

Fixed Price Billing
