Things to ensure before going to court

There are some important things to remember if you want to take somebody to the Small Claims Court because they owe you money:

• Make sure that your claim is legally valid: for example, that it hasn’t prescribed/expired (isn’t older than 3 years).

• Sue the right person for the amount not yet paid – sue the borrower.

• Make sure that the time in which they needed to pay has expired.

• Ensure that you have the necessary evidence like your loan agreement and witnesses to the agreement (people who have knowledge of the agreement and what happened) to support your claim.
