Legal expenses

What are legal expenses

Legal expenses are payments made by the Sheriff Court at the end of a court action. The court decides how much may be awarded in favour of the council and will issue us with a court order.

How will I know that I owe legal expenses?

We will write to you to tell you that an order for legal expenses has been issued. The letter will tell you the:

  • date of the court hearing
  • amount you owe
