Statutory demand costs
Statutory demand costs can be much cheaper than proceeding by way of normal court litigation. In circumstances where the statutory demand debt is undisputed, it can sensible to proceed with a statutory demand as the statutory demand costs can often be much cheaper than the court fees payable to commence a County Court or High Court claim.
At Francis Wilks & Jones, we have a very competitive fee scale for proceed with statutory demands and we are happy to provide this to you upon enquiry. Simply contact one of our expert statutory demand lawyers and they can talk you through our costings and we can send you our cost details. We would add that whilst it is not always possible to do, we do try to always recover any legal costs from the statutory demand debtor in circumstances where the statutory demand debt is paid. If we do this, then it results in a net zero cost to you of taking the action.
The only other cost incurred in statutory demand cases is a process server fee. We would always recommend that the statutory demand service is carried out by a process server to personally serve the statutory demand on either the statutory demand individual or statutory demand company. That way, it avoids any dispute over whether the statutory demand has been properly served. We work very closely with a number of process servers and their fee is ordinarily between £75 and £100. Again, we will make every effort to recover this from the debtor if we can.

As part of that process, we can advise you in advance as to whether your claim is suitable for a statutory demand or not.
