Costs In Small Claims Court: Here’s How It Works

Article Summary: 

This blog explains how recovering costs in Small Claims Court works for Ontario condominium corporations. The successful party is entitled to reasonable disbursement costs and a representation fee of up to 15% of the claimed amount if they were represented by a lawyer, paralegal, or articling student. Serving an offer to settle can be an effective way to recover costs, and the court can vary the costs award beyond the 15% limit if necessary. However, there is no guarantee of cost recovery, as it is at the discretion of the deputy judge.
