Multiple claimants with money only claims

If each of a number of claimants has a separate claim against the defendant, in a money only claim, the value of the claim for the purposes of calculating the claimants’ fast track trial costs is the total amount of the judgment made in favour of all the jointly represented claimants. If the defendant is to be awarded costs in these circumstances, the value of the claim is the total amount claimed by the claimants (r 46.4(3)(a)).
