Parts of the CPR which do not apply to small claims

In recognition of the fact that the small claims track is meant to provide a more informal forum in which to decide a dispute, in proportion to the amount at stake and complexity of the dispute, a number of parts of the CPR, or certain rules within a part, do not apply to the small claims track once the case has been allocated to that track. Also, because legal costs are not usually awarded for small claims cases, certain parts of the CPR, such as Part 36 offers to settle and payments in,7 are not applicable.
