- The general fee cap of £10,000, rising to £20,000 (but not for PI)
- A general 10% uplift on civil fees all round.
- Civil possession claim from £280 to £355. As most of those are brought by local authorities and social housing providers, the flow of cash would be a little circular.
- General Part 23 Applications - from £50 to £100 if without notice and from £155 to £255 otherwise.
- Divorce is going up from £410 to £750; why not profit from those going through one of the worst periods of their life.
- Want to appeal to the C of A, was £235, went up to £480, in future - £528??
- Want a hearing in the Immigration Chamber of the FTT? £280 up from £140.
- Want to challenge your landlord in the Leasehold bit of the FTT? £2,000 for hearing, currently nil!
- Want to challenge an FOI refusal from HMG in the FTT - currently free, in future £500!
- Don't like a HMRC decision, want to appeal to the Tax Chamber of the FTT - all currently free - fees to be introduced, up to £1000?
Thinking that all of that is a bit of a step too far....
