Small Claims Courts

The Small Claims Court allows you to institute minor civil claims in a speedy, affordable and simple manner without using an attorney. An amount not exceeding R 15 000 can be claimed.

If your claim exceeds R 15 000 in value, you can institute a claim for a lesser amount to pursue your case in the Small Claims Court.

Anyone, except juristic persons such as Companies, Close Corporations and Associations, may institute a claim.

With the exception of the State, a claim may be instituted against anyone, including Companies, Close Corporations and Associations.
